Fay drenches north FL, heads for the Mid-South?

Since Wednesday, Fay has made her presence known across northern and eastern Florida (where some locations have gotten as much as 25-30" of rain) and southern Georgia. Right now, rain has moved into southern Alabama, but a pretty good batch of showers has also separated some from the main core of the storm and is working it's way across northern Alabama, Mississippi, and southwest Tennessee, which could bring some sprinkles or light rain to the metro area today. Our cloud cover today is certainly part of Fay's broad circulation.

I expect Sunday to actually have lower chances of rain than today, but as Fay continues to move west and then slightly north into southern MS, look for a better chance of rain and thunderstorms again on Monday. Nonetheless, it will still be a fairly humid weekend and early part of the work week with a lot of Gulf moisture in place across the region. Even northeasterly surface wind around the general circulation of Fay will not lower humidity values significantly.
