We now have a better idea where that Gulf low is heading Wednesday and Wednesday night. Fortunately for Alabama, it seems to be heading towards our area, bringing plenty of heavy rain in places.

Places in Alabama that do get precipitation on Wednesday and Wednesday night could have heavy rain at times. We’ll also have some wind gusts up to 30 miles per hour.

From the National Weather Service:

“Regardless of tropical cyclone development, the system is forecast to produce gale-force winds over portions of the northern Gulf of Mexico by tomorrow (Wednesday), and potentially heavy rainfall along the Gulf Coast by the latter portion of this week. For more information, see products from your local National Weather Service office, and high seas forecasts issued by the National Weather Service.”
