Roads back open after flash flooding hit north Alabama but more storms are expected for today

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Good morning! Hope you're having a great day so far!

Roads are back open after flash flooding in north Alabama

Emergency crews toured flooded areas Thursday morning and said that all of the roads are clear.

Russellville police said they haven't received any calls since the rain stopped and everything looks clear now. Stevenson Police in Jackson County say all of their roads are back open.

Heavy rains associated with a round of storms that pushed through North Alabama Wednesday evening resulted in quickly-saturated ground and flooding.

Some areas received more than four inches of rain by 10 p.m.

Many small roadways in Colbert and Franklin Counties, in particular, the Russellville area, flooded, according to emergency officials.

Colbert County EMA officials confirmed water over several roads.

Traffic alert as you get ready to head out the door.

A lane closure on I-65 could slow you down this morning.

AL-DOT crews are closing the southbound lane at the northern part of the Tennessee River bridge-- that's just south of the I-565 interchange.

Its so they can replace a concrete slab.

The work will be during peak traffic times so drivers are asked to plan accordingly.

More storms are expected for today.

Skies are mostly cloudy this morning. Rain showers will continue developing this morning, mainly east of I-65. 

Areas of fog are also possible given yesterday's heavy rain. We should be slightly cooler this afternoon compared to yesterday with highs in the lower 80s. 

Still, as we warm up, rain and storms will become more numerous.
