Pockets of moderate to heavy rain continues to fall across Alabama with plenty more moisture in Mississippi to move through. Still expecting two rounds and round one this morning will continue through noon and taper off from west to east. The second round fires up ahead of the approaching cold front and impacts Alabama from west to east after 5pm through Tuesday morning.
Heavy rainfall is the main threat today and the threat for severe weather is much lower now for this afternoon. The Storm Prediction Center has removed the slight risk for severe storms. 1-2" widespread amounts this morning with locally up to 3" and an additional 1-2" possible with the second round this evening.
Heavy rainfall could lead to flash flooding and a flash flood watch is in effect until 1PM Tuesday. Minor river flooding is possible, flooding of roadways by creeks and streams possible and ponding in urban areas and poor drainage areas likely.
Remember to never try and drive through flood waters!
So far we have not had any flash flood warnings issued and lets hope that trend continues...
We'll continue to keep you posted throughout the duration of this event.
