Severe Weather Likely Monday And Wednesday This Week

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS WEEK'S STORM THREAT

SUNDAY EVENING UPDATE:

After a relatively quiet start to our spring severe weather season in the Chattahoochee Valley, an active weather week is expected and it all kicks off midday Monday. A storm system bringing severe weather to Louisiana and Mississippi Sunday night will move eastward Monday. Another storm system will develop on Wednesday bringing another threat of strong to severe storms to the area. Let’s break down the details:

WHAT TO EXPECT MONDAY:

Our first round of strong storms will arrive late tomorrow morning through mid-afternoon and will likely bring a line of storms through the majority of the viewing area. Damaging winds will be likely along this line along with the possibility for tornadoes. While heavy rain is likely as well, we’ve been a bit dry as of late and this will help to mitigate any widespread flooding issues. This line of storms should be a “quick-hit” and will arrive quickly and exit quickly, leaving some light to moderate rain behind it for a few hours before skies gradual clear late in the day.

WHAT TO EXPECT WEDNESDAY:

Wednesday’s storms will be a bit different in that we won’t be tracking a line of showers and storms in from the west as we typically do. Instead, we could see storms firing just to our west or directly over our area–many of which have the potential to rotate given the moderate to high wind shear that looks to be present. Wednesday’s storms could also be hail producers as a core of cold air will be moving in way up in the atmosphere. Bottom-line, we’ll have to stay up to date on the very latest with both of these storms systems so make sure you stay tuned to the latest WLTZ on-air forecasts and check back often here at wltz.com.
