FIRST ALERT: No serious damage, roads clear after storms roll through

(WAFF) - Roads clear after storms

The Tennessee Valley escaped serious damage after potentially strong storms made their way through the Valley Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning. The only concern remaining is the threat for flooded roadways, which remains minimal. Remember, if you see water on the roadway, turn around, don't drown.

Delayed schools

Five schools in the Tennessee Valley are starting on a delayed schedule this morning due to the weather.

  • Cherokee County Schools: Delayed 2 hours
  • DeKalb County Schools: Delayed 3 hours
  • Etowah County Schools: Delayed 2 hours
  • Jackson County Schools: Delayed 3 hours
  • Marshall County Schools: Delayed 3 hours

Rain clears out of the Valley

Rain showers will clear out of the Valley from west to east Wednesday morning, taking with it the threat of severe weather. Most areas will be rain free by 7 or 8 a.m. but flooding remains a concern even as the heavier rain ends. Be careful driving this morning and watch out for water on roadways. Temperatures will drop into the low-to-mid 50s Wednesday morning before recovering into the upper 50s for highs this afternoon.
