Showers And Storms for the Gulf Coast Today

19 Dec 2018, 3:22 am

A system moving across the Gulf Coast today will bring the chance for showers and storms.  Today’s severe weather risk will be very low, but Thursday will be a different story for the State of Florida.  Here is the latest on today’s forecast.

Severe Outlook

General thunderstorms are in the forecast from East Texas to West Florida.  General storms are storms that are below severe criteria (Large hail, damaging winds, tornadoes), but we still could see some strong storms with small hail and gusty winds.  Plus, the heavy rain chance could lead to low visibility and ponding on the roads.


Showers and storms will begin in East Texas early Wednesday and then the storms will continue to push East throughout the day.  Areas like Houston, New Orleans and Mobile will need to keep an eye out for some brief spin ups over the Gulf Waters as well.


Rainfall Potential

Rainfall should remain below 1 inch along the Gulf Coast through early Thursday.  Heavier rain all day Thursday into Florida and Southern Georgia.
