Flash Flood Threat Tonight


Flash Flood Threat Tonight

MOBILE, Alabama - A Flash Flood Watch for tonight and tomorrow covers these counties in the WKRG News 5 area: Mobile; Baldwin; Conecuh; both Escambia Counties; Santa Rosa and Okaloosa. By midday tomorrow, communities in this area, which is generally along and east of I-65, may get two to four inches of rain. The ground is saturated from heavy rain of five to ten inches earlier this week and rivers are running high.

Be prepared to take high ground, if you live in a flood-prone area. Once the rain starts, if you must travel, use extreme caution crossing water where you can't tell how deep it is. Keep your headlights on while it is raining, even in the daytime.

West of I-65, rain amounts are more likely to be closer to 1 to 2 inches. In general, the farther west of I-65 you are, the less you will get.

Lows tonight stay in the upper 50s with a steady east wind. Tomorrow we’ll hold in the upper 60s due to the clouds and cool northeast breeze. Rain will be heaviest early, for the morning rush hour, and then taper through midday as it exits eastward.

Follow the radar on WKRG digital channel 5.2 or on our Interactive Radar. Make sure your weather radio is on standby. Download the free News 5 weather app to keep up with watches and warnings. Check your local river levels here.

Clouds will hang around all day tomorrow, and last into Saturday morning. During the day on Saturday, clouds will also exit eastward so points west of Mobile Bay should see more sunshine, while points east, especially in the Panhandle, will see more clouds.

Sunday looks sunny and warmer with highs in the upper 70s to near 80.
