A chance of scattered showers and storms will linger thru roughly 6 p.m. Thursday.

Large hail, high winds and heavy rain appear to be the primary threats across the region Monday afternoon into Tuesday.

The severe weather threat will be gone by the overnight hours, but a few passing showers and storms will be possible as the cold front stalls out over our area.

We'll end the work week warm with highs in the mid 80s on Friday.

Expect mostly cloudy skies on Saturday with scattered showers (30%). As the rain continues to fall, the severe weather risk will transition to a flash flooding risk into the early afternoon hours. Some of the storms could be severe. Still some locally heavy rain though which will make travel more hard.

"1" to 2" of additional rainfall is forecasted through Thursday....enough to possibly force a re-crest of local rivers this weekend into next week.

Tremendous flooding resulted in downtown Trussville, which took on the appearance of a massive lake. Across Jefferson County, more than 120 roads were underwater.
