MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – Good afternoon Gulf Coast! Forecast headlines include a lovely day today, some rain tomorrow, then thunderstorms Wednesday and Thursday.
Highs today will be in the lower 70s. We’ll go from mostly sunny to partly cloudy this afternoon as moisture increases, but our skies stay dry. Tonight will be mild with lows in the upper 50s under a mostly cloudy sky. Tomorrow is back in the lower 70s, but it comes with a few showers by the afternoon.
Wednesday is a WEATHER AWARE DAY. Thunderstorms will move in on Wednesday, some of which could be strong and possibly severe. Our area is included in a slight risk for severe weather on Wednesday. This means that severe weather is possible, but it’s not a guarantee. All modes of severe weather at this point can’t be ruled out. Modes of severe weather are damaging winds, hail, and tornadoes.
The timing looks to be Wednesday afternoon through early Thursday morning. However, being more than a day away, it’s still too early to pinpoint the exact timing. This is nothing to worry about at the moment, but continue to follow the forecast. There will likely be changes to the outlook. Now would be a good time to go over a safety plan and identify how you’d get warnings if there were to be a severe storm in your neighborhood.
In terms of rain, most will pick up at least an inch of rain through Thursday, but some spots could pick up 4 inches plus.
By Friday the front moves away and the weather gets better heading into the weekend.
