The Flash Flood Watch for portions of Alabama and southeast

across inland southwest Alabama and southeast Mississippi. While
another round of showers and thunderstorms is likely late tonight,
the quick movement of the storms will limit the flooding potential.

  Coastal, and Mobile Inland. In northwest Florida, Escambia

  afternoon across areas south and east of the Interstate 65
  corridor. Another round of storms is likely after midnight
  tonight. These storms have the potential of producing 1 to 3
  inches of rain in a short time, which may lead to localized
  flash flooding, particularly in urban areas. Localized higher
  totals are possible along and south of Interstate 10.

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


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.
