Flash Flood Watch, Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 12:00 AM CDT May. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through late Tuesday
night...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of Alabama, northwest Florida, and southeast
Mississippi, including the following areas, in Alabama,
Baldwin central, Baldwin coastal, Baldwin inland, Butler,
Choctaw, Clarke, Conecuh, Covington, Crenshaw, Escambia,
Mobile central, Mobile coastal, Mobile inland, Monroe,
Washington, and Wilcox. In northwest Florida, Escambia
coastal, Escambia inland, Okaloosa coastal, Okaloosa inland,
Santa Rosa coastal, and Santa Rosa inland. In southeast
Mississippi, George, Greene, Perry, stone, and Wayne.

* Through late Tuesday night

* multiple rounds of heavy rain are expected across the entire
area through midweek. The bulk of the rain is expected to
impact the area beginning late this evening and lasting
through Tuesday night. Rainfall totals of 2 to 3 inches are
expected with locally higher amounts near 5 inches possible.
This additional rainfall will likely exacerbate the already
saturated ground across the region, which may lead to flash
flooding.

* Urban, low lying, and poor drainage areas will be the most
susceptible to flash flooding. Road closures are possible.

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.
