Storm system bringing chance of rain to the east through Tuesday


The same storm system that brought tornadoes to parts of the central Gulf Coast on Saturday will continue to move slowly eastward through at least Tuesday.

There were at least nine reports of tornadoes Saturday night in what the FOX Forecast Center calls a regional tornado outbreak in southern Alabama and Mississippi.

At least five of those reports were from the Mobile, Alabama metro area.

The FOX Forecast Center says the regional tornado outbreak was triggered by an unusually high amount of wind shear that combined with moisture from the Gulf of Mexico.

The National Weather Service is now sending teams out to assess the damage to determine how many tornadoes touched down in the area on Saturday.

By Monday evening, the rain will move east across the East Coast, including the I-95 corridor.

The FOX Forecast Center says some bands of heavier rain are possible, and up to 1 inch of rain is possible east of the Appalachians from Virginia to South Carolina.

Rain will persist along the east coast from North Carolina to Maine on Tuesday before the storm system weakens and moves offshore.
