The National Weather Service in Birmingham and Huntsville issued a flash flood watch effective 1 p.m. Monday through 1 a.m. Wednesday, with expected rain amounts from 3-6 inches, possible wind gusts in the 30-45 miles per hour range and a marginal tornado risk from 10 a.m. Monday through 10 a.m. Tuesday.

Local authorities including the Franklin County EMA have asked people to stay weather-aware for the next few days, to make sure to have a good source for weather information and warnings and to take the time now to prepare for how these upcoming weather conditions might affect the area.
