Adjust Comment Print

A cold front arrives Tuesday night into Wednesday, bringing some slightly cooler air and N winds to Texoma for Wednesday. The highest severe threat will be moving into northwest Alabama from 1-3 p.m. and northeast Alabama from 6-9 p.m. This is when we will likely see the best chance for severe storms.

SATURDAY NIGHT DETAILS: Expect partly to mostly cloudy skies and the risk for a stray shower will be minimal, around 10-20%.

A strong surface low-pressure passes north of us, a cold front will approach from the west late Sunday, and may even angle in more from the southwest pulled around the rotation of the strong low.

We're keeping a close eye on Sunday for the likelihood of heavy rain and possible severe thunderstorms.

As of Saturday afternoon, much of our area was already under a "Slight Risk" for severe weather.

- Damaging winds and isolated tornadoes will be possible overnight as a band of storms moves through the area. Lingering showers will extend all the way into Sunday morning though.

It's a messy start to Sunday across the Chattahoochee Valley as a line of showers and storms continues to push through the area. The chilliest morning looks to be Tuesday with lower 40s otherwise nighttime temperatures will mainly be in the 50s. For that reason, please heed all severe thunderstorm warnings with the same urgency as tornado warnings, since 60-70+ miles per hour wind gusts have the potential to cause as much tree and powerline damage as a EF0 to EF1 tornado. Chance of rain near 100 percent.

Despite lots of sun, temperatures will only climb into mid 60s this afternoon.

It may not be time to fish out the factor 50 just yet, but the sunshine and warm weather brings a welcome change from the usual carry-on!
