Tuesday Afternoon Forecast Discussion

A line of strong thunderstorms has developed over East Mississippi and some of the storms have prompted tornado warnings. Currently a tornado watch is in place for parts of our area, specifically locations south of Tuscaloosa. Also, at the time of this posting, we’ve been monitoring a tornado warning for Noxubee and Lowndes County, just across the state line.
 

The Tornado watch for the southern half of our area will be in place until 8:00 p.m. The line of rain and thunderstorms will continue to shift across the area through the evening hours. The air mass over the area is still quite dry and as storms move in, we will have the threat of very gusty winds. Look for thunderstorms initially, with a steady fall in temperatures overnight and occasional rain. Tomorrow morning we will wake-up to a sharp change. Look for a cold rain tonight, with temperatures near freezing by daybreak. There may be a few snow flurries, as the moisture departs early tomorrow morning. Tomorrow is going to be a cold and raw day, with breezy conditions. Highs for tomorrow will only be reaching the middle 40s. Lows tomorrow night will be in the mid 20s.


Thursday and Friday will be days that start off rather cold, with highs nearing the 60-degree mark. Clouds will be on the increase Friday night as a very strong upper air storm system pivots into the region. This will lift lots of rain in our direction for Saturday and Saturday night. There may also be some thunderstorms in the mix, with colder conditions to follow on Sunday. Be sure to stay with your Home Team for further updates and if any warnings are issued for our area we will be here to keep you posted.
