This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for the counties served by the
National Weather Service office in Birmingham.

.DAY ONE...Through Tonight.

Flash flooding will be possible mainly west of a line from Gadsden to
Clanton To Linden. Many parts of Central Alabama have received 2 to 4
inches of rain in the past day or so, and an additional 2 inches of
rain is possible through Friday. Any heavy rain will have the
potential of causing flash flooding on the already saturated ground.
This Flash Flood Watch may need to be expanded in time or area at a
later time.

There is a threat for brief tornadoes overnight. What is left of
Tropical System Cindy was well west and northwest of Central Alabama,
but the rain bands associated with this system will still affect the
area. All areas in Central Alabama have some potential.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.

There is a threat for brief tornadoes and isolated damaging wind
gusts on Friday. The main window on Friday will be during the
afternoon and evening hours as the remnants of Cindy move just
northwest of Central Alabama.

A risk of flash flooding will continue Friday. An additional 2 inches
is possible through Friday which will have the potential to produce
flooding issues. Some threat may extend into Saturday too.

Rainfall the past few days has caused rises on area rivers. The
rivers will continue rising but any flooding looks to be minor at
this time.


Activation of storm spotters and Emergency Management may be needed
now through Saturday due to the multiple threats across the area.
