Severe Storms Possible This Afternoon/Evening
There is a MARGINAL risk for severe weather today especially for our southern counties (south along a line from Hurtsboro, AL to Dawson, GA) with damaging winds up to 60 mph, frequent lightning and periods of heavy downpours all possible. Some tornado activity cannot be completely ruled out, but that risk remains low at the moment. Be sure to check the WLTZ FIRST NEWS Facebook page often throughout the day for the latest updates.
Yards and gardens have been screaming for rain as much of the area is experiencing moderate to severe drought conditions. Luckily, some relief is on the way. We could see anywhere from 1.5 to 3” of rainfall through Wednesday morning. While it may not wipe out the drought completely, it has the potential to make quite a dent.
Another cold front will push through Wednesday bringing much nicer weather. In fact, we can expect some of the coolest temperatures we’ve felt so far this Fall through Thursday and Friday. Daytime highs will be in the low to mid 70s with nighttime lows in the upper 40s to low 50s.
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.
