Wet weather continues in parts of the southeastern US with numerous showers and storms. As a result, flash flood watches are in effect for central and northern Georgia, most of Alabama, and Florida’s coastal panhandle Wednesday into early Thursday morning.
Alabama will see about 1-2 inches of rain, while some areas have already received 2-6 inches the past few days. As a result, these areas will be more prone to flooding since the ground is already saturated.
In addition to heavy rain and flash flooding, parts of Alabama are under a Tornado Watch.
