Heavy rain has been falling in the Deep South today, prompting flash flood warnings and flood alerts that continue through the evening hours. The heaviest rain will be along and north of I-20 with 3-4" possible. Grounds across the South are saturated from recent heavy rainfall, which means additional rain will struggle to be absorbed and could run off. Expect ponding on the roadways along with rivers, creeks, and streams running high.

Waves of heavy rain and strong storms will move southeast and while widespread heavy rain is likely, isolated to scattered severe storms will be possible through the end of the day today. All severe weather hazards will be possible including large hail, damaging winds, and a few tornadoes. Individual storms that form ahead of the cold front along and south of the I-20 will have the best chance to rotate and produce tornadoes.

It has been a soggy start to 2024, which is typically for the El Nino pattern we find ourselves in. There has been one big benefit to the new rainfall, it has drastically reduced the extreme and exceptional drought conditions over the Deep South from the particularly dry Summer and Fall seasons.
