The National Weather Service in Mobile has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of Alabama, northwest Florida,
  and southeast Mississippi, including the following areas, in
  Alabama, Baldwin Central, Baldwin Coastal, Baldwin Inland,
  Butler, Clarke, Conecuh, Escambia, Mobile Central, Mobile
  Coastal, Mobile Inland, Monroe, Washington, and Wilcox. In
  northwest Florida, Escambia Coastal, Escambia Inland, Santa
  Rosa Coastal, and Santa Rosa Inland. In southeast Mississippi,
  George and Greene.

* Through Monday morning

* Bands of thunderstorms with very heavy rainfall will continue to
  develop and move across portions of inland southeast
  Mississippi, southwest Alabama, and the western Florida
  Panhandle. An additional 2 to 4 inches of rain is likely in many
  locations with locally higher totals possible. The heavy
  rainfall could occur over a short time frame, increasing the
  risk of flash flooding. The heavy rainfall risk will shift east
  of southeast Mississippi by midnight, but will persist through
  the overnight hours along and east of the Interstate 65

* 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.
