Power outage update - WAFF-TV: News, Weather and Sports for Huntsville, AL

Power outage update

All substations are back online. The last outage was a result of metallic balloons becoming entangled in power lines along University Drive.

There are a number of additional small outages that crews are working on now to repair.

There is also a report of a gas main break on Monarch Drive that gas crews are en route to check.

Cool front in Tennessee is moving into the Valley today.  Showers and thunderstorms will be likely through the day because of this system.  Some storms may be severe with the main threat being damaging winds and hail once again.  As for rain amounts, much like this weekend, we could see up to two inches of wet weather in some areas today.  Skies will otherwise be partly sunny and temperatures will be on the hot side again as we reach into the low 90s.
