Flash Flood Watch, Dense Fog Advisory in Effect for Tuscaloosa, Alabama
The Tuscaloosa area is facing two weather-related threats Monday morning as the National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for most of the state and a dense fog advisory in West Alabama.
The watch is in effect through Tuesday night, as all of Alabama braces for several days of rainfall. All but 10 of the state's 67 counties are affected by the watch, including Tuscaloosa County and all of West and Central Alabama.
"Periods of heavy rainfall are expected across much of Central Alabama through Tuesday night," according to the watch. "Showers and thunderstorms could produce locally heavy rainfall at times, which could lead to flash flooding. Total rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches are forecast, with locally higher amounts."
The dense fog advisory has been issued for both Tuscaloosa and Pickens Counties and is set to expire at 9 a.m. Monday.
When driving in dense fog, stay slow, keep your headlights on and leave plenty of distance in front of you.
