ALG Connect Weather Alert: Flash Flood Threat

Flash Flood Threat Spreads Through Much of the South Through This Weekend


Flash flooding is possible across much of the South into the weekend as tropical moisture streams northward from the Gulf of Mexico and an area of low pressure sluggishly moves through the region. Several clusters of locally heavy rain are currently soaking areas from the northern Gulf Coast into parts of Missouri and Kansas. Parts of southwest Louisiana have already picked up over 9 inches of rain, according to NOAA's Weather Prediction Center. Overnight heavy rain flooded and closed multiple roads in and near Butler, Missouri, about 60 miles south-southeast of Kansas City. 


A broad area from Arkansas and Louisiana through north Florida, the Carolinas and southern Virginia should pick up at least 1 to 3 inches of rain through the weekend. The National Weather Service has issued flash flood watches from the upper Texas coast into southern Louisiana and far southern Mississippi. This includes New Orleans and Alexandria, Louisiana. Flash flood watches have also been hoisted for parts of the flood-weary Arkansas River Valley from southern Kansas and Oklahoma into southern Missouri and northwest Arkansas. Localized flooding will be possible from eastern Louisiana, Arkansas and southern Missouri into parts of Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, the Florida Panhandle, northern and western Georgia, upstate South Carolina and North Carolina.
