NWS: Rainfall Totals of 5 Inches Possible in Ala
Get out an umbrella: Forecasters say the next few days will be soggy across Alabama.
The National Weather Service says parts of the state could see as much as 5 inches of rain between Friday and early next week, and some areas could receive even more rain in small downpours.
While forecasters aren't predicting severe weather, they say brief periods of heavy rain and strong, gusty winds are both possible. So are rising streams and rivers that could lead to flooding.
The weather service says the storms are from an unseasonably warm and humid air mass that's moving across the Southeast. Rains could become more widespread and heavier late Sunday as a cold front moves in.
Forecasters say rains will continue into early next week.
