Marginal Risk for Severe Weather Sunday

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

Lingering showers and a few t-storms will continue into the evening with a few stray showers possible overnight.  Sunday morning will stay mainly dry up until lunchtime.  A squall line will advance through the viewing area from west to east beginning around 10 AM and continuing through 3 PM.  A Marginal Risk for severe weather has been issued by the Storm Prediction Center for Sunday.  Damaging winds is the main concern with some hail also possible.  A Marginal Risk is the lowest risk from SPC which means severe weather is not a guarantee and would most likely only be one or two storms.  The storm system will be quick moving and the local area will begin drying out by late afternoon Sunday.  Cooler temperatures will arrive Sunday evening.  It will be a series of cool if not chilly morning starts for the week ahead.  A reinforcing shot of cooler air arrives Tuesday leading to morning starts in the 40°s Wednesday and Thursday.  A quick warm up is then expected Thursday afternoon with a few showers returning to the forecast by the end of the week.  Another cold front will then push through late Saturday. - Jeff Morrow / WAFB Storm Team
