On Wednesday afternoon, West Alabama will see the arrival of showers and thunderstorms, bringing with them substantial rainfall. This weather system is expected to move gradually eastward, persisting into Wednesday night.

The National Weather Service in Birmingham has issued a “Flood Watch” that will go into effect from Wednesday, April 10 at Noon until Thursday, April 11 at 7 a.m.

Rainfall amounts of 3 to 5 inches with locally higher amounts are expected.

Alabamians should stay aware because excessive rainfall is possible, and that could lead to flash flooding.

This “Flood Watch” covers a large section of Alabama, including the Townsquare Media Coverage area, which includes the Bibb, Fayette, Greene, Hale, Lamar, Perry, Pickens, Sumter, Tuscaloosa, and Walker counties.
