Hurricane Sally Slowly Moving Toward The Northern Gulf Coast

 

All eyes are on Hurricane Sally, a category one hurricane currently. We expect hurricane Sally to make landfall along the Mississippi/Alabama boarder Wednesday afternoon and continue to track into  south Alabama/central Georgia. A flash flood watch is currently in effect for our viewing counties across Alabama and I expect the watch to be expanded eastward into Georgia later today. Only minor effects are expected today with cloud cover and light rain showers the main focus today. Cloudy skies will keep temperatures in the lower 80s today, a welcome break from the above average temperatures. As the remnants of Hurricane Sally approach us on Wednesday, expect the intensity and duration of heavy showers/isolated thunderstorms to increase and pose a threat for flash flooding. Current rainfall estimates could range between 4 and 6 inches+ across the area, depending on the exact track. Isolated,brief tornadoes are also possible on Wednesday with the outer bands of Sally. Please go over your weather safety information if you live in flood prone areas and what to do in case your a tornado warning is issued for your area.
