A Quick Update At 8:45 AM; Rain Winding Down

| February 13, 2020 @ 8:46 am

As of 8:34 am this morning, much of the shower activity has exited the state and has moved over into Georgia. We do have some lingering showers stretching from roughly Heflin down to Prattville and over to Selma, Clanton, and Sylacauga. This activity is light and is moving to the northeast at around 65 MPH.

Flash Flood Watches have been allowed to expire as the threat of flash flooding has come to an end as much of the rain has moved out of the area. We do still have a few Areal Flood Warnings in effect. Here is a list of those active flood warnings:

Dekalb County – Until 10:15 AM
Southwestern Madison County – Until 10:45 AM
Colbert, Franklin, Lauderdale, Lawrence Counties – Until 1:30 PM

With the warmth that we had across the area on Wednesday, we did have a few record highs reset…

Anniston’s high reached 75 degrees, which ties the previous record set back in 1962.
Montgomery’s high reached 81 degrees, which breaks the previous record of 80 degrees set back in 1922.

NWS Huntsville will be sending out a team to survey the damage that occurred in Lauderdale county last night.
