Mobile, Ala. (WKRG) – Our next weathermaker moves in from the west around mid-morning and a few strong storms are possible. Storms will come in the form of a line.

UPDATE (10:30 AM) – A new TORNADO WATCH is in place for most of the News 5 area until 5 pm. This means the environment is conducive for thunderstorms capable of producing tornadoes.


Most of our area is under a level 1 of 5 risk for severe weather which means isolated severe storms are possible. Our northern counties are under a level 2 of 5 risk meaning scattered severe storms are possible.


The main threat will be damaging winds, and a few tornadoes. We could also see some small hail. Outside of the thunderstorms, it will be breezy with sustained winds of 15-25 mph and gusts up to 35 mph. Because of this, a WIND ADVISORY is in place from 9 am until 6 pm.


The line of showers and storms will move in mid-to-late morning and exit our area around 7 PM Thursday evening.

Once this moves out Thursday evening, we will continue to clear out through the overnight. Mostly sunny skies return Friday with much cooler temps. Highs will be in the 50’s with lows in the 30’s through the weekend.
