There’s always a bit of a “post Christmas” letdown as things start to get back to normal, but ours seems a bit more gloomy due to impending active weather.
A developing frontal system is moving in and it’s going to bring several inches of rainfall to the Gulf Coast over the next week.
We won’t see much rain tonight other than a few scattered showers, but by tomorrow afternoon we’ll begin seeing more organized storms moving in. The most dangerous period of time will be between Thursday morning and Friday morning.
Our severe risk has been upgraded to “slight” during that time, which means we have a low chance of hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes; but our main threat will be likely flooding.
Flash Flood Watches have already been issued for all six coastal counties until at least Friday evening, but with more rain still to come by then we could see some extensions.
