Episode Narrative The remnants of what was at one time Hurricane Ida brought very heavy rain and gusty winds to a large portion of Central Alabama.
Event Narrative The effects of what was once Hurricane Ida, but had weakened into a Tropical Depression, were felt as early as Monday afternoon, November 9, in Pike, Barbour and Montgomery Counties, as light rain began falling around 2 pm. The rain continued to move northward and intensified Monday night and into the day on Tuesday, November 10. Rains continued across Central Alabama through Tuesday evening. By the time the last area of rain exited Cherokee and Cleburne Counties after midnight on Wednesday, November 11, nearly everyone across Central Alabama had seen at least 3 inches of rain. The highest storm total rainfall of 9.83 inches was reported just south of Opelika. Daily rainfall records were set on November 11 at Anniston (3.51 inches), Birmingham (4.01 inches), Montgomery (2.33 inches), and Tuscaloosa (2.89 inches).

Sustained winds around Central Alabama maxed out between 20 and 30 mph, with peak wind gusts generally between 30 and 40 mph. These winds blew down a few trees around the area, especially shallow rooted trees where the saturated soil likely played a significant role.
