Mobile and Southern Alabama will continue to experience large amounts of rain over this week. Experts with the National Weather Service said Wednesday will be the heaviest day and that this rainfall will likely bring flooding and flash flood warnings.

Meteorologist Brandon Black compared this event of rain to previous rainfalls.

"We have noticed this event has been one of our heavier flooding events that we have had in a long time," he said. "Some of our gauges were in their top-5 highest crests over the past week, which is pretty high for our area."

Black said for people living in flood plains and near rivers to avoid driving during flood warnings. Flash flood warnings are likely to occur Tuesday right into Wednesday. The rain may let up by week's end.
