HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BIRMINGHAM AL
308 PM CDT TUE MAR 29 2016

...FLOOD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK FOR WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY
NIGHT...

RAIN WITH EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS IS FORECAST TO BEGIN MOVING INTO
WEST CENTRAL ALABAMA LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT...AND SPREAD EASTWARD
ACROSS THE REMAINDER OF CENTRAL ALABAMA THURSDAY AND THURSDAY
NIGHT AS A STORM SYSTEM APPROACHES FROM THE WEST. THIS WILL
PRODUCE WIDESPREAD RAINFALL ACROSS THE AREA.

BY THE TIME THE RAIN DIMINISHES EARLY FRIDAY...TOTALS OF TWO TO
FOUR INCHES ARE FORECAST FOR MUCH OF CENTRAL ALABAMA. ALTHOUGH
SOILS ARE NOT CURRENTLY SATURATED AND MOST STREAMFLOWS ARE NEAR OR
A LITTLE BELOW NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR...THE RAIN IS EXPECTED
TO EVENTUALLY PRODUCE RISES ON SOME AREA RIVERS...WITH SOME MINOR
FLOODING POSSIBLY DEVELOPING BY THE WEEKEND.

AT THIS TIME...IT APPEARS THAT SOME OF THE RIVERS MOST LIKELY TO
EXPERIENCE MINOR FLOODING OR OVERFLOW INCLUDE PORTIONS OF THE
TOMBIGBEE...SUCARNOOCHEE...ALABAMA AND LOWER TALLAPOOSA. IN
ADDITION TO RIVER FLOODING...SOME LOCALIZED FLASH FLOODING COULD
DEVELOP...ESPECIALLY IN LOW LYING FLOOD PRONE AREAS NEAR SMALL
CREEKS AND STREAMS OR IN URBANIZED AREAS WITH POOR DRAINAGE.

INTERESTS ACROSS THE AREA ARE URGED TO MONITOR THE LATEST
FORECASTS AND WEATHER DEVELOPMENTS AND BE PREPARED TO TAKE
PROTECTIVE ACTIONS IF FLOODING DEVELOPS LATER THIS WEEK.
