Flash Flood Watch extended until 7 pm Monday | Central AL Forecast


Heavy rain, flash flooding continues across parts of Central AL this evening. Deep tropical moisture has stayed stagnant over the area, adding to our threat for flash flooding heading into tomorrow. A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for nearly all of Central AL until 7 pm Monday — extended earlier this evening into tomorrow.

Many places have picked up 3 to 5″ of rain over the past three days…an additional 1 to 2″ is likely, with a high chance of rain for both tomorrow and Tuesday. Be mindful that we could see additional flash flooding as heavy rain accumulates in low-lying areas and roadways…TURN AROUND, DON’T DROWN! Never drive through a flooded roadway.

On a lighter note, we are expecting a strong cold front to move in from the North on Wednesday. While there is still a chance for morning showers & storms Wednesday, we can expect drier conditions and much cooler temperatures by Wednesday night. As more autumn air moves in, temperatures will steadily be dropping to the 50s by Thursday morning. We’re expecting morning lows for both Thursday and Friday morning to be in the lower to middle 50s for everyone across Central AL. Ending the work week more sunshine than clouds on Thursday and Friday — a gorgeous, pleasant start to fall!

In the tropics, we currently have two active tropical storms in the Atlantic — Tropical Storm Peter, and Tropical Storm Rose. Neither of them are not expected to become a hurricane, and neither of them are likely to impact the mainland US. They will most likely stay out at sea & not cause any major disruptions to our weather.
