Episode Narrative A cold front interacted with the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee to produce a sustained period of rainfall, beginning in some places during the evening of the 4th and not ending until midday or during the afternoon of the 6th. Rainfall totals of 3 to 6 inches were common area wide. The heaviest rains occurred in a swath from Cullman through Marshall, DeKalb and Jackson Counties where some places received 8 to 12 inches of rainfall. The heaviest rainfall rates were observed during the morning hours of the 5th when one half to one inch per hour rates were noted, then tapered off to a light rain by the 6th.
Event Narrative Heavy rain associated with the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee produced flash flooding with several inches of water over several area roads in Albertville and Boaz. Several trees were downed in Boaz due to the saturated ground associated with the heavy rainfall.
