Here is the latest on Tropical Storm Lee. LOCATION…29.4N 92.6W MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS…50MPH… MOVEMENT…NNW AT 2 MPH…PRESSURE…988 MB. Tropical Storm Lee is located near Pecan Island on the Louisiana Coast and will bring us heavy rains through Labor Day. The storm is expected to move very slowly over the next 24hrs. The slow speed could result in flooding rains this weekend.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for most of the area. Flash Flood Warnings are also up for Mobile, Jackson, and George Counties. We have already seen 5-7 inches of rain south of I-10, especially over the western half of the forecast area. Mobile Regional Airport has recorded 5.96” of rain so far. Models hint at an additional 10-14 inches in areas south of I-10. A Tornado Watch is in effect until 7am for most of the area.

Isolated Tornadoes are possible in the feeder bands. Tides 1-3 feet above normal are expected. Highest tides will generally occur between midnight and 6am. We’ll continue to monitor this system throughout the weekend and bring you the latest.
