Episode Narrative Rain and thunderstorms came in multiple waves beginning during the afternoon and evening of the 8th and lasting into the 9th north of a warm front. A large amount of Gulf of Mexico moisture was drawn northward on a low level jet stream. Eventually, the warm sector made it's way further north before a cold front passed through during the afternoon of the 9th. Rainfall totals ranged from 1 to 3 inches across most of north Alabama. Amounts of 3.5 to 4.5 inches were observed across portions of Cullman, Lawrence, Madison, Morgan, Marshall, Jackson and DeKalb counties. Non-thunderstorm winds produced damage during the late morning of the 9th in DeKalb county possibly due to a gravity wave or wake low system.
Event Narrative Flash flooding prompted the closure of Lake Have Road at Old Moulton Road.
