Big Storms Gradually Moving Out…Severe Weather/Flash Flooding Issues….Storm Reports! Tuesday Update 9:20am

 
Good Tuesday morning! It’s been a long night across much of the area, with severe weather issues and flash flooding. There is significant flash flooding issued in Jefferson and Shelby County this morning, and isolated flash flooding in other parts of central and west Alabama. Please use caution when driving due to roads under water. Allow extra time to work or just on the roads. If you come across a flooded road, turn around! Above is the 9:20am Radar image. Storms are still moving across parts of central and south Alabama, but the strong to severe storms are gradually moving to the southeast. Look for the storms to calm down a bit across all of our area by lunch, with only scattered showers and storms expected for the rest of the day. The severe weather/flash flooding mess has been in response to an upper air disturbance. That feature is starting to move out of our area, so that should take most of this activity with it as the day moves along. Keep the rain gear handy!
Here’s a list of damage reports and flash flooding reports listed by time issued and reported. These are from the National Weather Service in Birmingham:
