Heavy showers and some thunder are affecting Cherokee County in Northeast Alabama this morning, prompting an Areal Flood Advisory from the National weather Service.

Places like Centre, Gaylesville and Cedar Bluff are seeing heavy rain.

Additional showers near Carrollton, GA will affect eastern Cleburne County evetually.

There will be ponding of water on area roads, so take it easy when you are driving.

And be alert to the threat of lightning.

Indications are that we will see this activity increase in coverage and spread across much of the area east of I-65 during the late morning and early afternoon, so be ready for scattered showers.

The activity is developing in a low level upslope flow of moist air coming in off the Atlantic out of Georgia.
