BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - The weather service has issued a flash flood watch ahead of what forecasters say will be heavy rains in southeast Alabama.

Storms moving in Tuesday could dump about 5 inches of rain around the Dothan area, and forecasters say some areas could receive even heavier downpours.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch that covers the southeastern corner of Alabama, southwest Georgia and parts of the Florida Panhandle.

Forecasters say heavy rains could extend as far north as central Alabama, and strong storms with lighting and isolated tornadoes are possible.

While there’s only a small chance of twisters and damaging winds, the weather service says flooding could be a problem across a wide area.
