FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Stray shower possible with the morning clouds

(WAFF) -

Temperatures should warm pretty quickly this morning, even before the sun rises as south winds increase. Skies will become cloudy as temperatures rise into the 50s and eventually the upper 60s by noon. 

Winds should stay at 5-10 mph through mid-morning before picking up to 10-20 mph by the late morning.  A stray shower is possible with the morning clouds, but the higher chance for rain comes in with a line of afternoon storms. 

That line should push into northwestern AL by 11a-1p and track east with time. It would be along I-65 and the Huntsville Metro area around 2-4p and push into northeastern Alabama after that. One of the storms will be on the stronger side with gusty winds of 35-45 mph. 

Isolated storms could become more intense with wind gusts to 60 mph and quarter-size hail. A spin-up tornado is possible, but the threat for that is much lower compared to the wind.  Storms should track out of the Valley by 7-8 this evening.

    New Orleans sits atop an ancient barrier island

    To the casual observer, this looks like any other section of marsh. However, this spot in extreme Eastern New Orleans-- almost at the St. Tammany Parish line-- is unique.
