A Tornado Watch is in effect today until 5pm for the FOX6 viewing area and most of the state of Alabama. A mass of heavy rainfall is also headed our direction out of Mississippi. Even though the Tornado Watch is in effect, I do believe our greatest potential threat could come from Damaging Straight-Line Winds...and perhaps an Isolated Tornado. Flash Flooding will also be a concern to our northwestern counties.
