Episode Narrative A slow moving frontal boundary pushed into a moist and unstable air mass during the afternoon hours on the 2nd. This produced numerous showers and thunderstorms resulting in 2 to 5 inch rainfall accumulations through 2 or 3 in the morning on the 3rd across northern Alabama.
Northwestern Alabama was hit the hardest, enduring a second round of flash flooding since the afternoon of May 1st. As a result of this rainfall and runoff from heavy rainfall further north, local streams and creeks added to flooding concerns through May the 3rd. In fact Shoal Creek in Lauderdale county reached a record flood stage of 23.12 feet around 2 am on May 3rd as a result of the heavy rainfall and additional runoff upstream. Numerous other rivers and streams rose above flood stage including: Big Will's Creek in northeast AL, Indian Creek in Madison County, and the Tennessee River at Florence.
Event Narrative Denise Drive in Decatur was reported flooded.
