We are looking at an active and challenging weather forecast throughout the area for today.
The MCS that moved across Alabama during Saturday evening and into the overnight hours, has moved all the way into southern Georgia this morning.
The atmosphere has been worked over pretty well from the MCS…and this could shift the heaviest storms further to our south today.
To our west another MCS exists across Oklahoma, northern Texas, and western Arkansas. Meanwhile, a cold front stretches from Illinois southward into northern Texas.
Models indicate that this boundary will push as far south as the I-20 corridor today as the next upper level trough approaches from the west.
We do expect the atmosphere will become unstable again this afternoon and evening. So look for partly cloudy with scattered showers and storms possible this afternoon across the northern sections. Highs will reach mid to upper 80’s.
Highs across the southern sections will be around 90, with increasing chances of thunderstorms this afternoon.
There is a chance of severe weather later today and into the evening hours across south central Alabama. The primary threat will be damaging straight-line winds. There is also a threat of large hail, along with heavy rainfall and frequent lightning. The threat time is mainly between 4pm and midnight.
