Flood Watch In Effect Thursday (2/3)

SUMMARY: Moderate to heavy rainfall will cause rainfall amounts from 2-5 inches, with isolated higher amounts. This will cause flooding issues, especially in flood-prone and low-lying areas.

DISCUSSION: Flood Watch goes into effect at midnight tonight and goes until midnight Friday for north Alabama, and until 6:00 AM for central Alabama. This system is moisture that is feeding a vigorous winter storm system to our north.

Heavy rainfall is expected to produce the potential for flooding late tonight through late Thursday night. Therefore, a Flood Watch is in effect from midnight on Thursday morning through midnight on Friday morning. Rainfall Totals Expected: 3-4 inches with up to 5 inches possible.
