 Cullman, DeKalb, Franklin AL, Jackson, Lauderdale, Lawrence,
 Limestone, Madison, Marshall and Morgan. In southern middle
 Tennessee, Franklin TN, Lincoln and Moore.
 From 1 AM CDT Thursday through late Thursday night
 Widespread heavy rainfall is forecast early Thursday morning as a
 warm front lifts northwards through the Tennessee Valley. This
 round of rain will produce 1 to 2 inches of rainfall across the
 area. This event will saturate the soils across the area. Another
 round of heavy rainfall is forecast later Thursday afternoon as
 severe storms approach from the west. These storms will be
 proficient rain producers. This additional rainfall will
 exacerbate any ongoing issues and lead to additional flooding
 issues Thursday afternoon and evening. 
 PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…
 A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to
 Flash Flooding. Flash Flooding is a very dangerous situation. You
 should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should
 Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
