Alabama Update at 7 a.m.: Mississippi Getting Soaked, Alabama Quiet For Now

| July 14, 2019 @ 7:09 am

Just a quick note to let you know that I am working on the morning video package and will have it up by 8 a.m.

A few notes:

…Tropical Storm Barry is still hanging in there over western Louisiana this morning, with top winds of 45 mph. It is about 80 miles south of Shreveport now.

…Heavy rain covers most of Mississippi and eastern Louisiana at this hour. The main outer rain band over Mississippi will rotate into western Alabama later today with some heavy rain. The threat for severe weather including tornadoes appears to be low for Alabama. But we not that there was a possible tornado in southern Mississippi earlier this morning, with a couple of tornado warnings being needed around Hattiesburg.

…It will be a little breezy today over western and northwestern sections, but nothing requiring any wind advisories. The breezy conditions will continue into Tuesday for places like Tuscaloosa, Hamilton and Muscle Shoals. You might see an occasional gust to 20 mph as far east as I-65.

…Highs today will be in the lower and middle 80s over western Alabam, with middle and upper 80s around I-65 and upper 80s to lower 90s over eastern Alabama.

…More rainbands will work into western Alabama tomorrow. The chance of a tornado will be slightly higher over western parts of the state tomorrow, so that will have to be watched.

Look for the video shortly.
