Texas, Louisiana brace for possible flooding and tornadoes

Severe weather and heavy rain threat Sunday night

The center said there is a risk of baseball-sized hail and tornadoes, including strong ones, in those areas.

During a high risk situation, enhanced events such as significant (EF-2 and above) tornadoes, hail larger than golfballs, and thunderstorm winds may reach or exceed 75 miles per hour. That means there is a threat of EF-2 or greater tornadoes in those areas.

The bad weather could start as early as daybreak for west Alabama, according to the National Weather Service. Heavy rainfall could also lead to flash flooding, the weather service said.

"While only a few of the numerous storms are now severe, the environment will remain quite favorable and further intensification of storms is expected throughout the afternoon and into the evening", forecasters said.

Starting on Monday, heavy rain is expected statewide.

National Weather Service meteorologist John Hart in Oklahoma said there was a significant risk of weather for MS and Alabama as the system keeps moving east.

Major threats will be damaging straight line winds, tornadoes and large hail. More rain will be possible through the afternoon, however.

There is a risk for severe weather today and tonight.

Forecasters said Monday's setup was a complex scenario and could be limited - or enhanced - if model solutions change. Damaging winds are anticipated throughout much of the region. If you don't already, be sure you have the WBTV weather app downloaded and the alerts turned on so you will be notified if a severe weather warning is issued for your location during your evening commute!

"This is a very significant storm event", Edwards said.
