A line of storms is currently pushing into Southern Alabama and the Western Florida Panhandle, where there is a “marginal” risk of severe weather due to the aforementioned line of storms.
This line will continue to push across Southern Alabama and the Florida Panhandle tonight. However, the overall severe weather threat is rather low; and gusty winds and heavy rain are the primary hazards.
The parameters will be in place for another round of strong to severe storms across most of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and the Western Florida Panhandle again tomorrow.
Timing and placement: At this time, the greatest threat for severe weather tomorrow will likely be late tomorrow night into early Saturday, in the “slight” risk area depicted in the graphic above.
Threats: All modes of severe weather will be possible; with hail and damaging winds appearing to be the greatest threats. However, there are some indications that there could be a somewhat decent threat for tornadoes.
Yet another round of strong to severe storms is expected across extreme Eastern Texas, much of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and much of North/Central Florida (including the Florida Panhandle) tomorrow night into Sunday. And unlike today and tomorrow, the parameters could be in place for a potential severe weather outbreak.
Timing and placement: The most likely time-frame for severe weather this weekend will be Saturday night into early Sunday across Central parts of the region, and Sunday morning into Sunday afternoon across Eastern parts of the region (Northern Florida).
The greatest threat for severe weather Saturday will be in the “slight” risk area in the graphic above, and across North/Central Florida on Sunday.
NOTE: As of now there is only a “slight” risk for severe weather Saturday; but that could very well change tomorrow, as it looks like the sever threat Saturday could be rather significant.
Threats: All modes of severe weather appear possible (tornadoes, damaging winds, and hail). And its too early to say for certain, but the tornado threat could be rather high.
Heavy Rainfall Through This Weekend
Heavy rainfall will also be an issue across parts of the region through this weekend, as 2 – 4″ of rain is forecast to fall. This could lead to some localized flooding issues in areas.
