And Even More Counties Have Been Trimmed From The Flash Flood Watch

| August 11, 2017 @ 3:20 pm

The National Weather Service in Birmingham continues a Flash Flood Watch for parts of Central Alabama until 7:00 PM tonight, but has decided to remove these counties from the watch:

Clay, Randolph, Coosa, Tallapoosa, Chambers, Autauga, Elmore, and Lee.

The intensity of any remaining showers and thunderstorms will not be enough to produce flash flooding. The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for these counties:

Lowndes, Montgomery, Macon, Russell, Barbour, Bullock, and Pike.

Pockets of heavy rainfall could develop this afternoon and early evening across portions of southeast central Alabama. With already saturated ground conditions in place, any additional rain could result in localized flash flooding.

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.

The National Weather Service in Huntsville has canceled the Flash Flood Watch that was in effect for the eastern half of North Alabama until midnight tonight. Counties canceled from the watch include:

Cullman, De Kalb, Jackson, Limestone, Madison, Marshall, and Morgan.

The threat of widespread showers and thunderstorms for this afternoon and evening has diminished. While scattered storms are still anticipated, a few of which may produce locally heavy rainfall, much of the area has been stabilized from overnight activity. Thus the watch has been cancelled.

The National Weather Service in Birmingham continues a Flash Flood Watch for much of North and central Alabama until midnight tonight, but has decided to remove these counties from the watch:

Blount, Etowah, Calhoun, Cherokee, Chilton, Cleburne, Jefferson, Shelby, St. Clair, and Talladega.

The Flash Flood Watch has been canceled in these counties due to cooler temperatures associated with persistent cloud cover will limit the amount of instability across the area, and the threat of additional heavy rainfall has decreased.
