A line of showers and thunderstorms will hamper commuters in our neighborhood tomorrow morning. This line brought damaging severe weather to Texas last night. The National Weather Service confirmed that a tornado hit San Antonio last night, damaging 150 homes and injuring several people.
This line should weaken before arriving in the News 5 area, but will still bring heavy rain and gusty winds over 30 mph. Computer model forecasts indicate the line will enter our Mississippi counties before dawn and move into southwest Alabama–including Mobile and Baldwin Counties–during the morning commute.
Rainfall amounts of 1-2 inches are expected, with more possible in a few spots. That’s enough to cause some streets to flood and creeks to leave their banks. Widespread flash flooding and severe weather are not expected at this time.
Check in here on WKRG.com and tonight on News 5 with Chief Meteorologist Alan Sealls for the latest. I’ll have more tomorrow morning, too.
