A cold, damp Sunday forecast for Long Island

Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness Week

Some of the storms have been strong, and the National Weather Service in Huntsville issued severe thunderstorm warnings for some counties earlier this morning.

The tornado watch is one of several announcements the National Weather Service has issued in the area, with severe thunderstorms and wind forecasted throughout the afternoon. First Alert Weather Days are created to give you an early notification about the possibility of severe weather in your area.

The rain is expected to fall between 2 and 6 p.m., Gerapetritis said, adding that some storms could linger into the evening.

This same system was responsible for almost 70 reports of tornadoes and wind damage Saturday across Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

This line of storms will have the potential to produce heavy rain, damaging wind, and isolated tornadoes.

Severe Weather Awareness Week continues on Thursday with a tornado drill.


Chances for rain and snow showers are possible on Saturday and freezing drizzle is possible on Sunday morning.

A red flag warning is in effect for Southwest Colorado from noon to 10 p.m. Monday as strong winds, coupled with extremely dry conditions, pose critical fire danger for the region.

That's up from the slight risk that forecasters predicted Saturday.

Flash Flood Watches has been posted for the western half of the state and will last throughout the rest of our Saturday evening.

The tornado watch covers areas south of Interstate 64 and west of Interstate 95, including metro Richmond, South Hill, Famville, Dinwiddie, Goochland, Crewe and Lawrenceville.

Monday night: Mostly clear, with a low around 31.
