First Alert Forecast: Strong-Severe Storms roll though Sunday

Adjust Comment Print

As of late Thursday, the Storm Prediction Center has Florida with a 15 percent chance of severe weather on Sunday, but that will be updated today.

As the work week ended, the Kansas City area was bracing for the chance of severe weather.

That's one scenario that the entire forecast hinges on for Saturday afternoon and evening: big southern storms, little if any severe weather in North Alabama - no southern storms, greater risk around here. Winds will turn breezy on Saturday with mostly quiet conditions through much of the day. "AT midweek on Wednesday we have a light rain back in the forecast, with showers over northern in that produce up to.25" of liquid.

This morning will be quiet, a few clouds, maybe a shower or two.

Hail, winds over 60 miles per hour and isolated tornadoes are possible during the severe weather event.

Increasing clouds through Saturday morning before showers and storms arrive - likely during the early afternoon and lasting overnight through a good part of Sunday. If you take a peek at radar, things may not look all that bad early on Saturday.

The storm system will be moving through from west to east, approaching metro Atlanta by Sunday morning.

A strong cold front is sitting just to our west. Expect at least a Severe Thunderstorm Watch to be issued, but wouldn't be surprised to see Tornado Watches.

The back edge of the rain will push east by late afternoon. These chilly temperatures will continue into Sunday, so you will want to have a jacket with you.

WHAT TO DO - Remain weather aware today. A healthy northerly wind behind the front will make it feel even cooler. With these type of winds, loose lawn objects will be blown around and travel may become hard, especially for high profile vehicles on east west roadways and bridges.
