UPDATE: A Tornado Warning is in effect for Baldwin County, Alabama until 3:00 p.m. Sunday. Another Tornado Warning is in effect for western Escambia County until 3:15 p.m.

A tornado was confirmed in Foley before 1:30 p.m., it's unknown at this time if the tornado caused any damage.

A Tornado Warning was issued for Escambia and Santa Rosa counties earlier Sunday afternoon, but the National Weather Service in Mobile says that information went out due to software issues and was incorrect.


After our first "real" fall front moved in just last week, we warmed back into the 80s with humid conditions.

If you're a fan of cool weather, well, good news - a cool blast is headed our way!

First, we have to deal with showers and storms before the cool, crisp air arrives.

A strong cold front that brought severe storms to areas in the Plains on Saturday & Saturday night, is moving into the Southeast as of Sunday morning.

As this front approaches, we will see warm and humid conditions with the increasing chance of showers and storms -- some storms may be on the strong side.

A few severe storms may be possible, as well. There is a Marginal Risk (1/5) for severe storms this afternoon and tonight.

Damaging wind gusts will be the main threat with any stronger storm; however, a brief tornado cannot be ruled out.

The main line of showers and storms can be expected to nose into our area from west to east by afternoon through the evening hours and tonight.

Heavy rainfall with isolated flash flooding will be a risk within any stronger cells that move in.

Rainfall totals are expected to be around 1-3"+ with some locally heavier amounts.

Heavy rain can be expected later today & overnight and clearing from west to east during the morning hours of Monday.

Skies should clear by Monday afternoon as drier and cooler air settles on in.

On Tuesday, a reinforcing cold front will bring us even cooler air. Temperatures on Wednesday morning will be in the 40s to lower 50s and highs will be in the upper 60s to around 70 degrees.
