Tropical Storm Lee Update

September 2nd, 2011 at 3:23 pm by under FOX10 Stormtracker Weather

Tropical Storm Lee is currently centered off the Louisiana Coast 210 miles s’west of the mouth of Mississippi River. Winds are at 40mph. This system is moving to the n’west at 2 mph. This erratic and slow forward speed is expected until Sunday. A flat upper level ridge pattern over the Tennessee and Ohio river valley region will keep Lee virtually stalled. The primary threat here will be very heavy rainfall. We could see tides 1-2 feet above normal. Isolated tornadoes are possible. Rainfall totals could easily exceed 10 inches along the coastal sections of the viewing area. Heavy rain may begin to move out of the area by Tuesday of next week.

    Well we sure do need the rain up here in Thomasville but not too much too fast. And for sure no tornadoes or bad wind.
