Heavy Rain For Part Of Weekend. Minor Flooding Possible

Mickey's forecast for Feb 12 2018

Several waves of rain will pass through this weekend - leading to flood concerns given all of the recent rain for north Georgia. If the heavier rain offshore gets closer to us, then local rivers and streams will need to be monitored more closely for minor flooding.

Larger rivers will rise Sunday-Tuesday causing localized flooding in low areas along the river banks.

Two to 3 inches of rain will be possible in north Alabama over the weekend, according to the weather service.

Forecasters are expecting periods of rain today, with isolated strong to severe storms both today and Sunday for almost all of south Alabama. This will depend on where exactly some of the heavier rain bands set up.

THURSDAY NIGHT: Cloudy skies and rain showers linger, with a low temperature of 36 degrees. High water may also develop in low-lying and poor drainage areas. But we're still mostly in the "getting-out-dryness" stage rather than the "saturated-for-flooding" stage. Essentially, it's going to be raining from now through Sunday afternoon.

The daylight hours of Friday will be dry with showers arriving from the south Friday evening. A prolonged period of heavy rain will overspread the region tonight into Sunday.

Severe weather and high winds will not be a factor this weekend although a few rumbles of thunder can not be ruled out Sunday. "But anyplace in the watch area should be monitoring the forecast in the next few days".
