Slight Risk for severe thunderstorms Saturday into Sunday with an enhanced Risk across Southeast Alabama and the Florida Panhandle
Threat Overview: Possible
Locally Heavy Rain 1.5 to 2 inches, isolated totals of 3 to 4 inches possible.
The first threat for Severe Weather will come with the passage of the Warm Frontal Boundary itself, as it pushes northward through the Tri-State Area either Saturday Afternoon or Evening. Although all types of Severe Weather mentioned above will be possible with the Warm Front, this time period may provide the greatest threat for Tornadoes due to the more favorable environmental wind profile. The second threat for Severe Thunderstorms will be along the squall line which is expected to develop just out ahead of the Cold Front as it begins to accelerate and sweep
eastward through the region late Saturday Night into the first half of Sunday.
The NWS will hold a webinar at 1:30pm at the EMA office this afternoon to discuss this potential severe weather.
