BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Parts of Alabama will remain at risk of flooding as more rain moves across the state, authorities said.

A large swath of southwest Alabama, including the Mobile metro area, is at an elevated threat of flooding along rivers and creeks, according to forecasts from the National Weather Service. Isolated flash flooding is also possible, forecasters said.

In southwest Alabama, forecasters said another 2 to 3 inches of rain, with higher amounts possible in some spots, will be possible with rainfall through late Wednesday night.

Other parts of the state will also be at risk of more flooding, the National Weather Service said.

Forecasters estimate that through Friday, more than 2 inches of additional rain could fall in the Auburn, Eufaula and Troy areas; and nearly 2 inches in the Montgomery area.

In Prattville, a large chunk of the shoulder along McQueen Smith Road was washed away during recent rains, The Montgomery Advertiser reported. City officials were determining what types of repairs are needed for the sinkhole along the road, one of the major thoroughfares through town.
