...Flooding and Flash Flooding Possible late Monday through Wednesday...

With the remnants of Hurricane Irma affecting the Tennessee Valley
from late Monday night through the better part of Wednesday,
widespread rainfall totals of two to three inches will be likely.
Isolated higher amounts of rainfall of four or more inches are
possible, especially for areas East of Interstate 65. Locations West
of the Interstate will receive the lower rainfall amounts.

While the brunt of the heavy rainfall will occur late Monday night
through much of Tuesday, moderate to heavy rainfall is still possible
well into Wednesday, and perhaps into Thursday, depending on where
the remnants of Irma track.

While widespread flooding and flash flooding are not expected, a few
instances of flash flooding are possible depending on where the
heaviest rainfall occurs early next week. By Wednesday and Thursday,
rises on area creeks, streams, and rivers will be noticeable from
recent heavy rainfall.

Stay tuned to further forecast updates regarding the remnants of Irma
and her eventual track across Northern Alabama and portions of
Southern Middle Tennessee. Though none have been issued at this time,
Flash Flood or Flood Watches and Warnings may be warranted from late
Monday night through much of Wednesday.
