While you slept Tropical Storm Cindy got stronger in the Gulf. We are on the wetter, more active eastern side of Cindy’s influence. That means some parts of Alabama could get some flooding rainfall amounts. I’ll show you some potential rain totals. A few spin up tornadoes are not out of the question for parts of Alabama today & tomorrow – I have the latest severe weather risk maps. Plus, a look ahead to the weekend…and also, down the road I see a day or 2 when we actually might dry out and see the sun! Here’s a your very important Wednesday morning briefing.
