The regional weather system bringing rain and cooler temperatures to the Calhoun County area will likely save its harshest effects for counties south of I-20, according to the National Weather Service in Birmingham.

Meteorologist Gary Goggins said an area south of a line extending from Pickens County to Randolph County is likely to see the more severe thunderstorms this afternoon (Thursday).

The chance of something extreme happening is less likely north of that line.

“We could have some severe weather across the northern counties. It just won’t be as severe as down south,” he said.

Goggins said rain is expected to reach the Calhoun County area between 4 a.m. and 7 a.m. Thunderstorms will develop in the afternoon, with an isolated severe storm possible — it “can’t be ruled out,” he said.

Temperatures will stay in the 60s during the precipitation, falling after the rain moves out in the dark morning hours of Friday.
