Potential for significant flooding late this weekend and into next week

Published: Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at 03:20 PM.

With already saturated soils in many locations, rainfall amounts of this magnitude could create another round of dangerous flash flooding across southern Alabama and Southwestern Georgia.

Impacts on Rivers

Should these anticipated rainfall amounts occur, significant rises on area rivers and streams would be likely. Currently the Choctawhatchee basins are well above base flows and vulnerable to flooding in the area between Geneva and Bruce into next week.

As with any hydrologic river prediction rises and eventual crests are largely dependent on where rainfall occurs and enters the basin. For this reason this outlook may be updated frequently in the next few days so stay tuned for any updates.
