FLOOD WARNING UNTIL 8:30 P.M. CST

CULLMAN - The National Weather Service in Huntsville has issued a Flood Warning for west central Marshall County in northeastern Alabama... Madison County in north central Alabama... Limestone County in north central Alabama... Cullman County in north central Alabama... Morgan County in north central Alabama... * Until 830 PM CST *

At 534 PM CST, reports from emergency managers, trained weather spotters and the general public confirmed flooding occurring at many locations in the warning area. Doppler radar and ground truth reports indicate that most of the warning area has received between 2 and 4 inches of rain since midnight. Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches are possible in the warning area, and this will continue to result in flooding on roads and in low lying areas normally more prone to impacts from persistent moderate rainfall.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the dangers of flooding.
