Alabamians Should Prepare for Heavy Rainfall, Potential Flooding
Be sure to stay weather aware because a very wet pattern will be impacting Alabama soon. This brings concerns about potential flooding due to heavy rainfall amounts.
According to the National Weather Service in Birmingham, the wet pattern is expected to start on Sunday and “could last through much of next week with additional rounds of rainfall expected.”
In addition, this wet pattern prompts the concern of flooding in portions of our coverage areas. “Due to ongoing saturated soil conditions, flooding will be possible at least across the southern third of Central Alabama Sunday through Monday morning,” said the National Weather Service in Birmingham.
Areas that could be impacted are the counties in the Southern half of Central Alabama along and south of the I-20 corridor. Those in low-lying, poor drainage areas and rivers should pay close attention to the possibility of localized flooding.
Heads Up About Next Week
“Additional rounds of rain are expected later into next week from Wednesday through Friday across much of Central Alabama,” said the National Weather Service in Birmingham. We could be looking at more possibilities of flooding during this time. We will closely monitor this situation and bring you all the necessary updates.
