MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) –
**UPDATE: As of 2:00 PM, the severe weather threat has ended. Please see most recent article for up to date information!**
We are monitoring for the chance for a few strong storms Saturday as a feeder band associated with Delta moves from west to east.
Saturday will be a WEATHER AWARE Day for the Gulf Coast. A line of showers and storms associated with Delta will slide east through the day. The line will enter our Mississippi Counties around 2-3 AM. The overall severe weather threat is low, but not zero. The line of storms will slowly move east, likely exiting the News 5 viewing area by 6-7 PM. Damaging wind gusts will be possible, along with a brief tornado. Highs will reach the lower and middle 80s. It will be a breezy day with south winds around 15-20 mph and 6-9-foot waves at the coast.
Conditions will improve Sunday with a return to sunshine and drier air. Highs will reach the 80s with lows in the 60s and 70s. This will lead into a quiet week with sunshine. There will be a few cold fronts that pass through, but we will leave the mention of rain out of the forecast.
