Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 9:54 AM CST Feb. 21, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch remains in effect through 6 am Friday...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of central Alabama, including the following areas,
Bibb, Blount, Jefferson, Shelby, St. Clair, Talladega, Walker,
Calhoun, Clay, Cleburne, Cherokee, Etowah, Marion, Winston,
Fayette, Lamar, Pickens, and Tuscaloosa.

* Through 6 am Friday.

* Multiple rounds of heavy rainfall are anticipated for portions
of north central Alabama through Friday morning. Surface soil
conditions are already saturated, and much of this rainfall will
runoff quickly, filling low lying areas, ditches, and creeks.
Local rivers and streams will also rise due to excessive
rainfall locally and across upstream river basins. Total rain
amounts since Sunday are already 3 to 5 inches, with locally
higher amounts. An additional 0.5 to 1.5 inches of rain is
possible over the watch area through Friday morning. Yet another
storm system will slide through over the weekend and will
monitor closely for an extension of the watch.

* Those with interests in flood prone or low lying areas, and
along local rivers in north and west central Alabama, should be
ready to take action if water levels rise.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
