APRIL SALAH. Alright TRAVIS. THANK YOU. NOW ON TO THE WEATHER WHILE WE TAKE A LIVE. TO LOOK OUTSIDE. OKLOT HAS THESE PRETTY CLEAR SKIES AND NICE CLOUDS HERE TODAY BUT I ENJOY IT, ALASKA BECAUSE WE HAVE SOME CHANGES ON OUR TRACK METEOROLOGIST LEE SOUTHCKWI IS HERE WITH MORE INFORMATION ON THE CHANGES AND WHEN WE CAN EXPECT THESE STORMS TO PASS TOMORROW LEE. ABSOLUTE YEAH. THIS IS AN EVENT FOR TOMORROW AFTER NO AND TOMORROW EVENING STRONG TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE FOR SOME OF YOU MORE SEVERE WEATHER IS LIKELY. FIRST LET’S DIVE INTO THE IMPACTS OF THE STORM. I WISH TO POINT OUT THAT OUR GREATEST CONCERNS ARE HAIL LARGE OR ONE INCH IN DIAMETER IN SOME CASES AND INCHES THE SIZE OF A QUARTER. IF LARGE HAIL IS POSSIBLE YOU WANT TO PREPARE AHEAD AND MEOV YOUR CAR INSIDE IN A GARAGE OR UNDER SOME PROTECTION AND DAMAGING WINDS OF 58 MILES PER HOUR OR MORE THIS IS A STRAIGHT LINE WIND. SO YOU WANT TO KNOW LOCKOUT OUTDOOR FURNITURE THAT INCLUDE GARBAGES AS WELL AS ANYTHING THAT CAN BLOW MAKE RESU IT’S SAFE TORNADOES. THERE IS A MEDIUM RISK OF TORNADOES AND FOR SOME OF YOU THERE COULD BE STRONG TORNADOES AND LONG LIVE TORNADOES, AND THERE IS ALSO A RISK OF FLOODING TOO. SO WHO IS UNDER WHICH SKRI THE GREATEST RISK IS FOR THOSE OF YOU IN OUR RED SHADED AREA HERE. THIS IS A MODERATE RISK. THIS IS A LEVEL FOUR OUT. FIVE SO THIS RISK HERE INCLUDES KE NTWOOD A MT EEHAMMOND FOLSOM FRANKLINTON. HE GOES TOWARDS BOGALUSA. IT INCLUDES BOGALUSA AND PARTS OF POPLARVILLE AS WELL AS ERYVEONE IN THE TSHI RED SHADED REGION. HERE. YOU ARE AT THE GREATEST RISK OF A MORE SEVERE STORM YOU COULD SEE LONG LIFE TORNADOESHE T SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS THEY LAST LONG LARGE HAIL AGAINST A STRAIGHT LINE WIND OF 58 MPH OR EVEN STRONGER THAN THIS MORE SOME FLOODS. RAIN ALSO THEN FOR THOSE OF YOU IN THIS BROWNISH OMBRE COLOR. THIS IS AN INCREASED RISK. SO, FOR EVERYONE, SEE THE NORTH SHORE ROADS IN MISSISSIPPI. THIS INCLUDES THOSE ALONG THE LAKE HERE AT COVINGTON SLIDELL PICAYUNE AS WELL AS TOWARDS SNTAI LOUIS BAY. THIS IS A LEVEL THREE THAT THE AOLS INCLUDES MOST OF THE SOUTH SHORE INCLUDING NEW ORLEANS ALL THE WAY TO LAPLACE TO RACELAND AND LAFITTE. AND THEN THOSE OF YOU IN SLIGHT RISK, THIS IS A LEVEL TWO WHERE WE STILL CAN’T EXCLUDE A FEW SPIN-UP TORNADOES. AND OF COURSE THE DAMAGING WIND AND THE THREAT TO HEALTH SLIGHT RISK FOR THOSE WHO ARE THERE ALONG THE COAST INCLUDING GALLIANO AND GRAND ISLE. SO WHAT IS THE WEATHER TOMORROW MORNING? YOU CAN WAKE UP TO A FEW SHOWERS. THIS IS NOT THE SERIOUS RISK BUT WE COULD SEE SOME RAIN AND IT WILL BE WINDY THROUGHOUT THE MORNING UNTIL SOON NOTICE BY AFTERNOON OUR ATTENTION TURNS TO THE WEST. IS THIS LINE OF HEAVY THUNDERSTORMS BEFORE THE LINE OF HEAVY THUNDERSTORMS. YOU MAY SEE THESE SMALL ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOPING. THEY COULD BECOME SUPER CELLS WITHIN THESE ISOLATED STORMS. WE COULD SEE A RISK OF TORNADO HAS THE RISK OF ADVERSE WINDS AND THE RISK OF HAIL THEN THIS MAIN LINE MOVES JUST BEHIND IT. IT’S 4 PM STARTING ALREADY FOR PLACES LIKE TAN CHIPOTLE PARISH HERE NOT AS WE HAVE MOVED THROUGH THE EVENING THIS LINE IS SLOWLY MOVING EASTWARD SO WE CAN SEE THESE ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS BEFORE IT AND THEN THE LINE OF HEAVY THUNDERSTORMS IS MOVING INTO THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS 6 PM AT THIS TIME. THIS PATTERN INDICATING IT WILL MOVE THROUGH METRO NEW ORLEANS TOWARDS AIRPORT WAY DOWN TO GALLIANO AND UP TO BOGALUSA SEVEN PM STILL MOVE EASTWARDS NOT YET TO PLACES LIKE BOOTHVILLE THEN EVENTUALLY GET TO GULF . AND THE BOOTHILL AREA 8 9 10 W CLKOC STARTS EXITING HERE. IT IS THEREFORE AN AFTERNOON AND EVENING EVENT. THERE IS ALSO AN EXCESSIVE RISK OF RAIN, WE MAY SEE SOME RISK OF FLOODING FOR THOSE OF YOU MAINLY ON THE NORTH SHORE AND PARTS OF THE SOUTH SHORE ALONG THE LAKE SO HAS A MARGINAL RISK FOR THOSE OF YOU YOU FURTHER SOUTH WIND WARNING AS WELL TUESDAY 9 AM TONIGHT PM GUSSEPO T 40 MESIL ONE HOUR.
