Cullman County Flash Flood Watch – Saturday, April 14, 2018

The National Weather Service in Huntsville has issued a FLASH FLOOD WATCH for Cullman and surrounding counties (Lawrence & Morgan).

Multiple rounds of moderate-to-heavy showers and thunderstorms are possible along and ahead of an approaching cold front.

Beginning daylight hours Saturday into Saturday evening, rainfall totaling around 3 to 4 inches – with locally higher amounts – is possible across the watch area.

The threat of heavy rain and thunderstorms will then diminish from west to east after Midnight Sunday, as the front begins to move across the Tennessee Valley region.

Urban areas, lowlands adjacent to rivers and streams, and low water crossings will be the most vulnerable to the excessive rainfall and possible flooding.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding.

Flash flooding is a VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.

You should monitor future forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
