Furthermore, the system's intense rainfall may affect areas ranging from Kentucky to Georgia and extend towards the Carolinas. Additionally, there is a risk of flash flooding occurring.

What Does This Mean for the South and Alabama?

Part of the overall storm system includes the southern region. As the storm tracks east, it will cover eastern Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas, then it should track into Mississippi, with the potential for damaging winds, hail, and the threat of tornadoes.
