CODE RED WEATHER ALERT Monday
Severe storms, a tornado threat and very heavy rain.
Tornado Watch in effect for all of our coastal counties including Mobile & Baldwin has been extended until 7pm Monday.
A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until Tuesday afternoon.
More of these dangerous storms will slam our area with several inches of rain in short order. Most locations will receive between 2-4" of rainfall with isolated amounts near 5", that's why the Flash Flood Watch was issued.
I see one last swipe of severe potential through the mid-afternoon hours as a squall line moves in from the west. After that, look for more waves of rain through the day on Tuesday.
Tuesday will be a raw, chilly day with waves of rain but NO severe storms.
The first frost and freeze of the season is still possible later this week. However, it will be delayed a day or two as the clouds will hang around on Wednesday, keeping our morning temperatures in the 40s. With clear skies both Thursday and Friday morning, temperatures will fall into the low and mid 30s.
Yes, we are still in hurricane season through the end of November and there is one area we are watching that will likely become our next named storm. It's just east of the Caribbean and if it gets to tropical storm strength it will become Patty. Right not this system doesn't look like it will pose any threat to the Gulf of Mexico, but we'll keep an eye on it for you.
