The severe weather threat will be shifting east today and the risk for heavy rain, damaging winds and tornadoes will continue throughout Thursday for parts of the Gulf Coast.  Flooding potential will be high with the chance for several inches of rainfall.  Here is the very latest.

Forecast

The key ingredient today will be the extremely high moisture moving north out of the Gulf of Mexico.  This will be the fuel for heavy showers and storms and the risk of severe weather for the late morning and early afternoon.

Severe Outlook

All of the severe weather risks will be in the forecast today.  Damaging winds, heavy rain and tornadoes will be the highest risk with hail chances being on the lower side.

Timing

The latest timing of the severe storms will be in the late morning and early afternoon hours.  There will likely be a tornado watch issued for parts of Mississippi and Alabama later this morning so stay tuned.  WeatherNation will be covering these storms all morning and all afternoon.  Keep checking back for updates...also, you can download our free WeatherNation App where you can watch WeatherNation On-Air anytime!!!   Meteorologist Patrick Crawford
