Yesterday's Rain

Radar estimates show rainfall amounts varied from 1" in isolated portions of West and Central Alabama to nothing in portions of Northeast Alabama.

As expected, most of Alabama saw at least a little rain yesterday. There were a few areas which received no rainfall and a few which received isolated heavier amounts. There were also a few reports of small hail in Central Alabama and a few reports of winds in the 50-60 mph range that blew down trees in a few isolated areas. There was also a report of lightning injuring children. A few official rainfall totals from the National Weather Service include:

Huntsville .18"
Muscle Shoals .02"
Anniston .01"
Birmingham .05"
Montgomery .50"
Tuscaloosa .12"
Mobile .00"

CoCoRaHS reporters observed some of the isolated heavier amounts. Those include:

Helena 1.78"
Pelham 1.08"
Ozark 1.02"
Clanton .78"
Killen .78"
Capshaw .74"
