Radar and Forecast Update – 5:20 am Monday
October 1, 2012 Leave a comment
As of 5:22am Monday morning, here’s our setup across the southeast. We had one stray tornado warning for Coosa and Elmore County in east Alabama just before 5am, but that warning has expired. So far, it sure looks like the best chance of these isolated tornadoes will occur east of I-65 through the mid afternoon hours. The surface low is moving into east Mississippi, with a cold front extending southward, approaching Meridian.
We’ll keep an eye on the showers approaching the west Alabama state line, but they are well below severe limits at this point. It’s not out of the question we get an isolated, small tornado, but the risk of that west of I-65 is pretty low. The cold front will reach west Alabama between 7 and 9am, then push east of I-65 between 10am and noon.
A dry slot has worked into west Alabama as of 5:22am, and the northeast track of the dry slot will clear out most of the rain across west and central Alabama through the morning. Instead of getting the non-stop soaking like yesterday, rain will become spotty for the rest of the day. Hang onto the rain gear for the rest of the morning and afternoon. As the front arrives from the west, most of the rain will move out as well. I can’t rule out a couple of showers behind the front.
