Friday Afternoon Severe Weather Update | Weather
The threat for severe weather this weekend looks possible mainly in a time frame of early Sunday morning. I am still thinking that the threat is a very marginal threat, but there is the threat for some very strong winds with some of these storms that roll into the state. Here is the set up:
There is a moderate risk for severe weather tomorrow across the Ark La Tex region and those storms will form into a line that will head in this direction late tomorrow night. It will be a large squall line that will move through Alabama late tomorrow night. Once it comes into NW Georgia early Sunday morning the actual cold front will start to weaken and slow down as the upper energy moves towards the NE. It will be a that point in time that there will be a small window between around 4-8am in an area north of I20 where some of these storms could produce some strong winds up to and around 50mph. I am not expecting tornadoes at this point in time.
The threat is up a bit from the way it was looking yesterday, but still a very low threat. The SPC is talking about putting us in a slight risk for Sunday morning for damaging winds.
I am raising the threat level to around a 2/3 on a scale of 1-10 for early Sunday morning. Stay tuned for any changes.
