It is important NOT to focus on the circulation center and the “cone of uncertainty” in this case, copious amounts of tropical moisture and very high precipitable water values are being pulled northward 500-600 miles east of that center, and some of the heaviest rain and the highest flood threat most likely is going to be east of the cone, which includes much of Alabama. Flash flood watches cover much of the state, where rain amounts should range 2-6 inches. But, some places could see over 10 inches, with very significant flooding likely.
