Weather Alert: Severe weather possible across the Gulf Coast on Easter Sunday
(WXXV) — Going into the weekend, all eyes are on the potential for a severe weather outbreak across the Deep South.
The Storm Prediction Center has outlined much of the northern Gulf Coast with an “Enhanced Risk” for severe weather Sunday and Sunday night, which is threat level 3 out of 5 on their scale.
All forms of severe weather will be possible, including tornadoes, damaging wind gusts, hail, and flash flooding.
Models are still trying to lock on to when this will take place. The current timing brings the worst of the weather into southeastern Louisiana and South Mississippi late Sunday afternoon into Sunday night. This event is still too far out for specifics! We will have a better idea of exact timing and what impacts to expect as we head into the weekend.
The National Weather Service said Thursday, “Know for right now the potential for a significant severe weather episode – with all forms of severe weather looks very possible Sunday. Stay tuned for more updates.”
Always have multiple ways to receive severe weather watches and warnings should they be issued!
The good news is this system will quickly move out. We will dry out on Monday and Tuesday with cooler temperatures finally filtering back into the region!
