Afternoon Harvey Update

It’s been a busy day in the weather department! You may have noticed that it has begun to rain outside. This is the first wave of moisture from Harvey to arrive. I circled an area of southern Mississippi because that will be moving our way tomorrow afternoon.

That circled red area is also under a tornado watch. The threat for tornadoes will be around here tomorrow afternoon.

Here are the threats for tomorrow. Hopefully, the worst of the weather will stay to our southwest, but it’s too close for comfort. I’ll be watching it for you all throughout the day.

We can still expect a couple inches of rain from this system, but much higher amounts will be to our west, around Nashville. Flash flood watches are now in effect for those areas. Notice the tornado watch for southern Mississippi. That is what we have to look out for tomorrow afternoon.

As if that weren’t enough, we now have Tropical Storm Irma out in the Atlantic. It was named today. And, perhaps most disturbing, models are now suggesting another tropical system will develop in the western Gulf and affect Texas by Labor Day. Let’s hope this doesn’t happen.

You all have a good evening and be careful driving home in the rain.
