…THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS THE CENTRAL
GULF COAST STATES…
A couple tornadoes and isolated damaging winds will be possible
through tonight across portions of the central Gulf Coast States.
Scattered supercells remain concentrated within a corridor of
low-level warm advection that is focused across the central Gulf
Coast region. Latest radar data depicts at least half a dozen
longer-lived supercells from southeast MS into southwest AL. This
activity has produced tornadoes earlier this evening and warm
frontal interactions remain favorable for additional tornado
development. Additionally, Tropical Storm Olga is forecast to move
onshore along the LA coast later tonight and LLJ should strengthen
across southeast LA into western MS in response to this cyclone.
While ongoing convection is currently concentrated along the
advancing warm front, new supercell activity is possible later in
association with strengthening wind fields in response to Olga.
