... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of central Alabama, east central Alabama, southeast
Alabama, and west central Alabama, including the following
areas, in central Alabama, Autauga, Bibb, Chilton, Coosa,
Dallas, Elmore, Jefferson, Lowndes, Montgomery, Perry, Shelby,
and Walker. In east central Alabama, Macon. In southeast
Alabama, Bullock and Pike. In west central Alabama, Fayette,

* Through this evening

* moderate to heavy rains will continue to stream across the area
as Tropical Storm Cindy moves north and makes landfall along the
Texas Louisiana coast. Rainfall of 2 to 3 inches is possible
with locally near 4 inches in the south. This is in addition to
rainfall that has already occurred. This will be a prolonged
heavy rain event and flooding could persist for some time. Flash
flood warnings as well as areal flood warnings may be issued as
rain accumulates.

* An additional watch may be needed for Friday as the low moves
closer to the area.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
