Several rounds of showers and storms may produce heavy rainfall which could cause flooding across portions of Central Alabama including Cherokee County.
A Flood Watch is in effect for a majority of Central Alabama through Wednesday night.
The National Weather Service has expanded the Watch area and extended the time to include most of Central Alabama excluding a few counties in the far southwest through 1 am Thursday with the threat being heavy rainfall which may lead to flash flooding and river flooding.
Rainfall amounts of 2-4 inches are possible with locally higher amounts.
The current level of Weiss Lake is 562.5’. Full pool is 564’ so at this time it doesn’t appear that the forecasted amount will cause any flooding of Weiss Lake with the exception of low lying areas that are normally prone to flooding not caused by lake flooding.
