UPDATE 9/16/2020 12 p.m.

Sally has flooded the Alabama coast and Florida Panhandle with 10-20 inches of rainfall with more rain anticipated through the afternoon.

As of 12 p.m., Sally remains a hurricane with sustained winds at 75 mph moving NNE at 5 mph.

Its center is located 20 miles north of Pensacola, FL. It will continue to lose strength over the next 2 days.


We will see a few isolated showers this afternoon from very weak, outer rain bands of Sally with tropical, humidity in place.

North Mississippi has the best chance to see those showers with most of us under a mostly cloudy sky.

As the system moves through our area, we want to see your photos and videos. Only if it’s safe to do so, share them with us here:
