Scattered Showers & Isolated Thunderstorms Possible Through Thursday
Keep the umbrella close by because we are in a wet pattern until Thursday with showers and isolated thunderstorms expected through that period. As of this writing, there are no FLASH FLOOD warnings or even watches in our viewing area (there is an Areal Flood Advisory until 8:00 PM CST for Chambers County, AL), but we’ll keep an eye on that as plenty of rain will fall to our north and could easily sink south to hinder us. .25 to .75″ (locally higher amounts possible) of rainfall is possible for our area through Thursday with much heavier amounts (2-4″ with up to 6″ locally) expected north of the I-20 corridor across Georgia and Alabama.
We’re tracking the possibility of strong to severe storms mainly Wednesday into Thursday, but a few storms could affect northern portions of Harris and Talbot counties along with the majority of Troup County Tuesday morning into the early afternoon. A MARGINAL risk remains at the moment. Damaging winds and periods of heavy rainfall will be the biggest threats. Could see some flooding, as well.
Back to that severe threat Wednesday into Thursday. Much of the viewing area will be under a MARGINAL risk, but western portions of Russell, Lee and Chambers counties will be at a SLIGHT risk with a better chance to see damaging winds up to 60 mph. This could change, but it’s what we’re going with at this time. Stay WEATHER AWARE.
The other weather story is the springlike temperatures that are running 10-15 degrees above normal during the day and 20+ degrees above average at night. Daytime highs will push into the low to mid 70s through Wednesday with overnight lows in the upper 50s to mid 60s. A stronger cold front will roll through Thursday and bring highs back down into the 50s Friday and Saturday with lows in the 30s and 40s.
