Marginal Risk for Severe Storms Tuesday
The cold front that passed through over the weekend is now lifting back into the region as a warm front (stationary over the area at the moment) bringing more rain with it. Today, we’ve had 1.95″ of rainfall at the Columbus Airport as of this writing and we’re not done yet.
The system has weakened, but there is a MARGINAL risk for severe storms Tuesday north of a line from Tuskegee to Talbotton. Strong winds of 40+ mph is a concern. With the soil still saturated from all the rain we’ve had, the winds could be strong enough to topple trees.
Ample moisture and warmer dewpoints will aid in producing enough instability to trigger isolated thunderstorms through at least Thursday.
