(image: WPMI) CODE RED WEATHER: Tracking a powerful Saturday storm

All this week we've been tracking the potential for a powerful storm impact this weekend along the Gulf keep you ahead of the storm...and it's still on track and we have declared Saturday as a Code Red Weather Alert day. That means there will be significant, disruptive weather blasting through our area, mainly during the afternoon and nighttime hours.

The primary threat with this one will be the heavy rain, which looks like it will start up during the afternoon into the evening hours Saturday. Periods of rain will continue overnight, eventually ending on Sunday morning.

At this time (Wednesday evening) there is less of a sign of thunderstorms with this setup, but folks along the coast could hear some rumbles of thunder with a very small chance of damaging weather due to wind or tornadoes. Again, that threat, as small as it is, will be confined to the immediate coastline.

*IF* the center of the storm tracks a little farther north and we tap into some of the warm, humid air from the Gulf of Mexico, that could change so please check back for updates.
