FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Heavy rains and gusty winds likely as line of storms moves across Valley

(WAFF) -

A band of heavy rain is shifting into the Tennessee Valley Wednesday morning. The rain will be ongoing for many to the west of I-65 throughout the morning.  It's likely the heaviest band of rain won’t make it east of the interstate before 7 a.m., but scattered, moderate showers can be expected before then.

In additional to the localized flooding threat from the heavy rain, gusty winds of 40-45 mph are possible. The stronger storms and higher threat for any severe weather should stay south of Birmingham.

By 3 p.m. the heaviest rain should be gone, but lingering showers will hold on until clearing out by the evening. Temperatures should hold steady for a few hours in the morning hours and begin falling as we head into the afternoon, likely slipping into the 50s by 2 to 5 p.m. Skies will begin clearing overnight and lows should fall into the mid 40s.

We’ll experience quiet weather to end the work week. Look for plenty of sun Thursday and Friday with highs in the low-to-mid 60s.
