Severe Storm Potential on Monday and Tuesday

Another powerhouse storm system is heading our way and it has the potential to produce severe storms along our slice of the Gulf Coast.

Monday: Dangerous thunderstorms with large hail, damaging wind, and possible tornadoes are expected to our northwest. Locally, showers and storms are possible, but the risk of severe weather is at level 0 on a 0-5 scale.

Monday Night: Thunderstorms are likely and this is when our slice of the Gulf Coast has the best chance of severe weather. However, the bigger risk of rough weather is expected to stay to our north as the storm system travels from Arkansas to Illinois.

Tuesday: Showers and storms, possibly severe, remain in the forecast, but the threat level is currently at 0.

Any adjustment in the path or strength of the storm system would increase or decrease our odds of both thunderstorms and severe weather. Please check for additional updates as we fine tune the forecast. We should see somewhat of a break in the thunderstorm action on Wednesday before another wave of showers and storms sweeps through on Thursday and Friday.

The Tropics:

We are keeping an eye on the tropical Atlantic Basin, but there are currently no areas of concern. Hurricane season runs through the end of this month.
