The National Weather Service in Huntsville has issued a Flash Flood Watch for all of North Alabama until 7 a.m. Thursday.

This includes Colbert, Cullman, DeKalb, Franklin, Jackson, Lauderdale, Lawrence, Limestone, Madison, Marshall and Morgan counties.

Franklin, Lincoln and Moore counties in Tennessee also are included.

Rainfall amounts around 1 to 3 inches have occurred across the area over the last 24 hours and caused soils to become fairly saturated.

Further development of heavy showers and thunderstorms with additional rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches across the area is likely to cause instances of flash flooding through tonight.

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.
