Tara Doggins with the National Weather Service office in Calera said heavy rain and storms are expected in Anniston between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. Friday, with rainfall possibly lingering for several hours afterwards.
“All the severe weather should be gone by mid-morning,” Doggins said.
As of 2 p.m. Thursday, no flood advisories were expected for the area. Doggins said meteorologists were tracking the storm on the other side of the state. That’s where they expect the storm to bring the biggest threat sometime after midnight, with damaging winds and possible isolated tornadoes.
Doggins said the weather should clear up for Friday afternoon and into the weekend, with expected sunshine Saturday and Sunday and temperatures in the high 60s and low 70s.
