UPDATE - Timing of main line of storms now expected to be between dawn & noon on Monday.  The greatest risk for severe weather is with this line, though there will be isolated storms ahead of the line.  Main threats are damaging wind gusts, isolated tornadoes, and heavy rain.

ORIGINAL POST FROM 12/26/15 - Based on the NWS Mobile forecast discussion from Saturday afternoon, it appears that severe weather is possible in the storm system that will be approaching from the West on Sunday night.  Isolated tornadoes are possible.  They are estimating that the area will receive 1-2 inches of rain from these storms with some locally heavier amounts.  This could produce more flooding.

The storms will begin popping up in our area late Sunday night, but based on current thinking, it looks like we'll see most of the storms on Monday morning.

The basics are:

What:  Heavy rain w/ possible severe thunderstorms & isolated tornadoes
When: Late Sunday night thru midday Monday
Where:  All of Monroe County
Impacts:  Additional Flooding Possible & Potential for Wind & Hail damage.
