... Storm survey plan of the day for Friday June 23rd...

.Overview...

Bands of showers and a few thunderstorms, rotating around the

from 1 to 8 inches, with locally higher amounts. The heaviest rain
occurred south of a line from near Troy to near Tuscaloosa and
Birmingham. We have received several flooding reports the past few

a few locations will experience minor flooding.

Two damage locations were associated with rotating thunderstorms.
This damage may be associated with tornadoes.

At this time, storm surveys are being planned for the following
counties Friday June 23rd:
