HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HUNTSVILLE AL
550 AM CDT WED MAR 11 2015

...ANOTHER ROUND OF HEAVY RAINFALL MAY INCREASE THE RISK OF CREEK AND
RIVER FLOODING LATE THIS WEEK...

LIGHT TO MODERATE SHOWERS ASSOCIATED WITH A WEAK EASTWARD MOVING COLD
FRONT WILL CONTINUE ACROSS THE REGION THIS MORNING. THIS ACTIVITY
MAY LEAD TO SIGNIFICANT PONDING OF WATER ON ROADS AND MINOR FLOODING
OF LOW LYING AREAS.

A GREATER THREAT FOR FLOODING WILL DEVELOP FROM THURSDAY THROUGH
FRIDAY NIGHT...AS A STEADY STREAM OF TROPICAL MOISTURE AND RAIN
WILL RETURN TO THE REGION AHEAD OF A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM TRACKING
FROM THE NORTHWEST GULF COAST INTO THE OHIO VALLEY. ALTHOUGH THE
TRACK OF THIS SYSTEM AND AXIS OF HEAVIEST RAINFALL HAVE NOW SHIFTED
WEST OF THE REGION...ADDITIONAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 1 TO 2 INCHES ARE
EXPECTED ACROSS THE AREA. WITH SOILS ALREADY SATURATED...THE
ADDITIONAL RAINFALL WILL INCREASE RUNOFF POTENTIAL AND LEAD TO AN
ELEVATED THREAT FOR FLOODING...ESPECIALLY ALONG CREEKS AND RIVERS.

REMAIN ALERT FOR UPDATED FORECASTS AND STATEMENTS AS FLOOD WATCHES OR
WARNINGS MAY BE ISSUED.
