Episode Narrative A slow moving frontal system caused several large areas of showers and thunderstorms to move across Central Alabama, during the period from January 5 to January 7. Some of the thunderstorms became severe, producing sporadic wind damage. Storm total rainfall from the storms ranged from 1 to 3 inches south of Interstate 20, to 3 to 7 inches north of the Interstate. The highest rainfall totals, of over 6 inches, occurred in a broad swath from Walker to Etowah Counties. Numerous locations, again mainly north of Interstate 20, saw significant flash flooding due to the heavy rainfall, which later turned into river flooding that lasted for several more days.
Event Narrative Heavy rainfall produced flooding at several locations across Fayette County. At least one business on Temple Avenue, in the city of Fayette, was damaged due to flood waters.
