Mobile, Ala. (WKRG) – Happy Saturday Gulf Coast!
We are WEATHER AWARE starting tonight through Sunday morning. We started the day with a few showers and some patchy dense fog but those have since cleared. We do bring in the chance for a few showers and maybe a rumble of thunder or two this afternoon. There is a very low risk that some of these could be on the strong side, but at this point, that looks unlikely.
We see another risk overnight (a little higher risk than this afternoon, but still low) as a line of storms moves in along the cold front itself. Most of the News 5 neighborhood is under a level 1 of 5 risk for severe weather with the biggest risk being to our north.
Once that clears out after lunch on Sunday, COLD and windy conditions move in. We are looking at wind chill values in the 20’s Monday morning.
As far as other impacts go…We have a Wind Advisory in place this morning through tonight for winds of 15-25 mph and gusts up to 35 mph. On the water, there is a Small Craft Advisory in place today with a Gale Watch issued for tomorrow. Gale conditions include winds of 20-30 kt and seas of 6-10 feet. There is also a high risk for rip currents through the weekend and high surf expected.
Sunshine returns Monday with cold mornings through the week. Temps will start to rebound by midweek before another front moves in.
