The expectation is for rainfall totaling between two to five inches, with locally higher amounts likely.

According to James Spann, chief meteorologist for ABC 33/40 and Townsquare Media, rain is widespread across Alabama this afternoon with the exception of the southeast part of the state. A flash flood watch will remain in effect tonight for the central and southern counties.
