Intense rainfall prompted a couple of Flood Warnings in North Alabama Thursday evening.  Water over roadways was an issue for various spots across the area as rainfall totals approached 2 to 3 inches.  All in all, some locations can still see up to 4 inches of rain through Friday.

A Flood Watch remains in effect for all of the area through Friday morning. Big Nance Creek and Courtland, the Paint Rock River near Woodville, and the Flint River at Brownsboro are all expected to experience minor to moderate flooding in the coming days, as well. All three streams are under Flood Warnings starting Friday morning. Continuing issues with flooding are possible as run off in the following days causes water levels to continue to rise.

Heavy rain tapers to showers by Friday morning. A cold front will be passing Friday night and until then, it'll be mild with highs near 60 Friday afternoon. Once that front passes, Saturday will be much cooler. Temperatures start in the mid 40s during the morning, likely steadying out or dropping slightly to the upper 30s/lower 40s during the afternoon. Sunday is more seasonable with sunshine returning.
