Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 4:31 PM CST Feb. 22, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch now in effect through late Saturday night...

The Flood Watch is now in effect for

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

* Through late Saturday night

* periods of moderate to heavy rainfall over the past week have
caused creeks and rivers to become full and overflowing their
banks. Many roads across the watch area are flooded and closed
to traffic. Surface soil conditions are saturated, and any
additional rainfall will quickly runoff, filling low lying
areas, ditches, and creeks. Even though forecast rainfall
amounts are not overly excessive, any rainfall will aggravate
existing conditions.

* 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.
