Residents across many coastal communities are preparing for a wet and potentially dangerous weekend weather system moving through. Heavy rains, flooding, strong winds, and severe thunderstorms are possible from Hawaii to the Gulf Coast and up the Eastern Seaboard.

While major flooding is not expected for most East Coast cities, the Pacific Northwest and Hawaiian Islands could see several inches of rain, leading to flooding, overflowing rivers, and possible mudslides. Areas recently impacted by wildfires are at heightened risk.

Urban regions and those prone to flash flooding should also take precautions.

On the Gulf Coast, a line of robust thunderstorms with gusty winds, heavy rainfall, and frequent lightning pushed through Friday morning.

These storms will continue East into the weekend, elevating the risk for damaging winds, tornadoes, and further flooding across parts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. Cities like Mobile, Montgomery, and Pensacola may endure the worst conditions.

Residents across these regions should closely monitor updated weather alerts through the weekend. Flash flood watches are likely for the most vulnerable areas.

All communities in the path of the storm system should take proper precautions to protect life and property. With winds capable of downing trees and power lines, having an emergency plan and supplies is highly recommended.
