Severe Storms And Flooding Possible Sunday And Monday

Severe weather watches and warnings are issued by the Storm Prediction Center and the National Weather Service. This storm is capable of damaging wind gusts and quarter-sized hail. An Enhanced Risk is forecast for east Texas and northwest Louisiana for late in the day into the night.

There is also going to be a threat for heavy rain.

Some of the storms are expected to become locally strong to severe, with all modes of severe weather possible - i.e., hail, wind, and even tornadoes.

As severe thunderstorms have intensified along the state line, conditions are right for large hail and possibly tornadoes, according to a National Weather Service bulletin.

Heavy showers and storms will already be moving into western Alabama before the sun rises. Much of this drought area should see another inch or more of rain through early next week.

Forecasters say the main line of storms is expected to pass the Atchafalaya River, west of Baton Rouge, shortly after midnight, and head toward the Mississippi Coast.

By noon Sunday, hail, unsafe winds and street flooding had been reported in some regions. That means there is a threat of EF-2 or greater tornadoes in those areas.

A second area of thunderstorms could develop across north Texas and Oklahoma later on in the day on Sunday as the upper-level low moves across the area.

A funnel cloud was also spotted inside the city limits of Corinth near Magnolia Regional Health Center, however the storm did not create a tornado. When combined with rainfall from Wednesday this could easily cause more localized street flooding and flash flooding of low-lying areas.

Numerous watches and warnings will be likely during this time period, so please make sure you have the KLTV Weather App downloaded and that you have signed up for First Alert ThunderCall.

Your weekend will start off pleasant and on a dry note.
