Hurricane Sally will make landfall overnight near Gulf Shores, AL. After landfall we expect a sharp turn to the northeast ahead of a cold front. Rainfall totals for south Alabama will range between 15 and 20 inches. Significant flooding is likely in parts of south Alabama and the western Panhandle of Florida. Rainfall over north Alabama will be higher over northeast Alabama beginning late Wednesday into Thursday night. One to two inches of rain is possible over northeast Alabama with less than a half inch over northwest Alabama.

A cold front will move in Friday and provide a very nice weekend. Afternoon highs will fall back to the upper 70s with morning lows in the lower 60s and upper 50s.
