NWS Birmingham has extended the FLASH FLOOD WATCH northward to cover Blount, Cherokee, Etowah, Marion, and Winston counties as localized flash flooding will become possible throughout the day.
Several rounds of showers and storms may produce rainfall totals of one and one-half to two and one-half inches, with locally higher totals in a short period of time. With the saturated soils already in place, even an inch of rain may cause localized flash flooding. Use caution while driving.
The FLASH FLOOD WATCH continues for Autauga, Bibb, Calhoun, Chambers, Chilton, Clay, Cleburne, Coosa, Elmore, Fayette, Greene, Hale, Jefferson, Lamar, Lee, Perry, Pickens, Randolph, Shelby, St. Clair, Sumter, Talladega, Tallapoosa, Tuscaloosa, and Walker counties until 6:00 am Wednesday morning.
