Heavy Rainfall, Storms Still Expected Tonight into Monday

A storm system (mentioned in our previous update here) is still expected to bring heavy rain and storms across much of the South, including the the Northern Gulf Coast region, tonight into early Monday.

Timing: A line of storms has formed over North Texas. It will advance east and east-southeast across parts of North/Central and East Texas tonight, expanding in coverage.

Then, tomorrow morning, it will push across Western and Central Louisiana, Eastern Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, tomorrow afternoon, and the Florida Panhandle late tomorrow afternoon/early tomorrow evening into early Monday (but in the form of a broken line or large, unorganized complex of storms).

Severe Potential: There is potential for some storms to become severe across portions of North/Central and East Texas tonight. Damaging winds will be the primary threat. Though, damaging hail and a couple of tornadoes can’t be ruled out.

Additionally, there will also be some potential for some storms to become marginally severe across Southeast Louisiana, Southern Mississippi, Southwest Alabama, and possible the Western Florida Panhandle tomorrow afternoon and evening.

Damaging winds would be the primary threat with any severe storms tomorrow.

Heavy Rainfall: Rainfall accumulations between 1 – 2″ are expected regionally, with locally higher accumulations of up to 4″ possible, which could lead to some localized, minor nuisance type flooding.
