Severe Storms Likely Into Saturday Morning
From Chief Meteorologist Shane Butler: Strong to severe storms are likely overnight into late Saturday morning.
We’re tracking a line of storms moving eastward out of MS and into the western half of the state. The storms are producing strong winds and frequent lightning strikes.
There could be a few discrete cells out ahead of the main line that might produce a few tornadoes. The main line will more likely contain damaging winds with the potential for a few quick spin up tornadoes.
The main line enters west Alabama around 3am and quickly moves eastward through the state.
You should secure any items such as lawn furniture or garbage cans around the yard. It’s important to have ways of receiving warnings overnight.
Looks like the storm threat shifts east into GA by midday Saturday. We could actually see some sunshine during the afternoon hours. A better looking day is setting up for Sunday.
We’re thinking sunshine with temps topping out in the upper 70s. Sunny and dry conditions stick around through Monday and Tuesday. Temps respond with highs in the lower 80s. More rain/storms heads our way around the middle of next week.
