It was an active morning for North Alabama, as heavy rainfall swept in from the northwest. Fortunately, as of 3PM all flash flood warnings have been allowed to expire.
A batch of showers and thunderstorms working from tropical moisture leftover fro Barry produced excessive rainfall over parts of the Shoals early this morning, and some localized flooding is still possible there too. Rainfall total estimates from radar range from 1″-4″ over northwest Alabama:
Reports were made of flooded roads in Florence this morning, and this afternoon reports of flooding in Hartselle and Decatur have also started coming in. We want to give a friendly reminder to never drive where water covers the road. Always turn around and find an alternate route if you come upon a flooding roadway.
More rain and storms are possible through the afternoon and evening as the remnants of Barry continue to move through. We transition from our soggy pattern to a hotter and drier one later on this week.
