A flash flood warning remains in effect for Marengo, Greene, Hale, Pickens, Perry and Sumter counties in west Alabama until 6:30 a.m. Saturday.

A flash flood watch means that flash flooding is possible in or close to the watch area. These are generally issued for flooding that is expected to occur within six hours after heavy rains have ended. Those living close to low-lying areas or close to the river need to be aware of the possibility of flash flooding.
