A tropical storm forming in the Gulf Coast is projected to bring rainfall across Alabama, with the potential of flooding in areas across the state beginning Wednesday.
The National Weather Service in Birmingham said "a frontal boundary will move through the area Wednesday afternoon through the overnight hours. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible along this front, with heavy rainfall anticipated."
James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said "scattered to numerous showers and storms are likely statewide, mostly during the afternoon and evening hours."
