for...
Marengo County in southwestern Alabama...
Sumter County in west central Alabama...

* until 630 PM CDT

* at 325 PM CDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to showers

in a short period of time on already saturated grounds.

Demopolis, Livingston, York, Linden, Uniontown, Cuba, Jefferson,
Thomaston, Sweet Water, Gainesville, Epes, Myrtlewood, Faunsdale,
Emelle, Dayton, Nanafalia, Consul, Boyd, Magnolia and Wayne.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, country roads, farmland, and other low lying
spots.
