Severe Storms Possible Tuesday
A stationary front to our south will make its way back up toward our area as a warm front through the middle of the week. Several short waves of energy will ride along that front giving us a chance for rain tonight through Wednesday morning. We could see anywhere from 1.5 to 3” of rainfall (with locally higher amounts possible) by the time it moves out Wednesday afternoon.
There is a MARGINAL risk for severe weather Tuesday afternoon into late Tuesday night especially for our southern counties (south along a line from southern Russell/AL to southern Sumter/GA) with damaging winds up to 60 mph, frequent lightning and periods of heavy downpours all possible. While we are not expecting tornado activity, there does remain a low risk. We’ll need to keep an eye on that.
Another cold front will push through by Thursday with high pressure setting up behind that will make for some much nicer weather. Expecting the coolest daytime highs so far this fall Thursday through the early part of the weekend. Nighttime lows could hit the upper 40s Wednesday night through Friday night, too.
Yet another system is expected to develop as we get into the latter part of the weekend into early next week that could bring more rain.
