Alabama Skies: Flooding rains continue

Published 1:30 am Monday, January 30, 2023

There will be a short period of time today without rainfall, but don’t expect dryer weather to stay. Rain returns tonight across much of the state, and rainfall is expected to just get heavier as the week continues.

The National Weather Service is continuing to watch the Tombigbee River with a posted flood warning. Right now, only minor flooding is expected, but any flooding could worsen as heavy rainfall is expected later in the week.

If you’re traveling, be sure to check road conditions as our neighbors in Tennessee and Mississippi could have some ice accumulations on roadways tonight and at points through Wednesday.
