Severe weather is not expected to occur during this year's Fourth of July celebration, what we are expecting...heavy rain.

Showers are ongoing across Alabama throughout the day and embedded areas of thunder are expected throughout the remainder of Wednesday. Forecasters are anticipating a general 1-3" rainfall with some isolated amounts in excess of 3 inches.
