The Storm Prediction Center has upgraded parts of southeast Louisiana, southern Mississippi, and southwest Alabama to a moderate (level 4 out of 5) risk for severe weather. Tornadoes (some strong) and damaging wind gusts are likely. Hail will also be possible, but is not as great of a threat compared to the potential for tornadoes and damaging winds.
The greatest risk for severe weather will be within the moderate risk area this afternoon into the evening. However, the risk will shift east overnight into south Alabama and the Florida Panhandle.
Be sure to have multiple ways to receive watches/warnings.
