The watch includes the cities of Bonifay, Chipley, the Holmes County Airport, Chipley Municipal Airport, and surrounding areas, as well as five counties in southeast Alabama.

A flood watch remains in effect through Thursday morning, with flooding caused by excessive rainfall possible. The flood watch extends to portions of southeast Alabama, the Florida Panhandle and Big Bend, and southwest and south central Georgia.
