A Few Strong Storms For South Alabama Tonight; Rain Ends Early Tomorrow

2 min read

RADAR CHECK: Rain is widespread across Alabama this afternoon with the exception of the southeast part of the state. A flash flood watch will remain in effect tonight for the central and southern counties.

A tornado watch has been issued for Mobile, Baldwin, Washington, and Clarke counties in Southwest Alabama until 9:00 tonight. A few strong to severe thunderstorms are possible tonight over the far southern part of Alabama, where the air is somewhat unstable. Heavier storms over South Alabama could also produce strong gusty winds. The risk of severe storms is mainly along and south of U.S. 84.

Severe storms are not expected to the north with a rain cooled, stable airmass in place.

While showers and storms could linger across Southeast Alabama through mid-morning tomorrow, for the rest of the state the day will be dry with some afternoon clearing possible. The high will be in the 65-70 degree range for most places. Sunday will be a sunny, cool day with a high in the 55-65 degree range.

NEXT WEEK: Temperatures will drop into the 30s over the northern 2/3 of Alabama both Monday and Tuesday morning, and colder spots could see a light freeze. But we warm into the 70s over the latter half of the week as cold snaps this late in the season don’t last long. Much of the week looks dry, although some rain could return by Friday. Global models continue to suggest some risk of rain lingering into Saturday (March 16)… See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.

ON THIS DATE IN 2000: An F1 tornado traveled a short distance across Milwaukee, Wisconsin, during the evening hours. The tornado injured 16 people.

Look for my next video briefing here by 6:00 a.m. Monday…
