COPY-Severe weather to affect area Monday afternoon and evening

By Derek Kinkade   - bio | email 

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Severe weather will impact the Valley Monday afternoon and Monday evening.  Stay tuned to WTVM & WTVM.com for the latest updates.

WHEN:  Monday afternoon and Monday evening.  Storms will enter our East Alabama counties between 3 PM and 5 PM ET, then move through cities like Eufaula, Phenix City, Columbus, Talbotton, and Thomaston between 5 PM and 7 PM, then affect areas south and east of there soon after.  Storms should be moving out of the viewing area just before midnight.  Keep in mind that these times are approximate, and as more information comes in early Monday, this could change!

It does appear that the rush hour may be wet or stormy in many places.  We encourage you to check the weather before heading home from school and work, and to drive carefully if the roads are wet.

THREAT:  Damaging winds will be the biggest threat with the storms that move through.  Isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out, but we think if we have warnings tomorrow, most of them should be severe thunderstorm warnings (for winds 58 mph or greater, or hail one inch in diameter or larger).  Keep in mind, severe thunderstorms can and occasionally do produce tornadoes.  Flooding does not appear to be a major threat, as most places will see less than an inch of rain.

WHAT TO DO:  Stay close to a source of weather information throughout the day Monday, like a NOAA Weather Radio.  Don't rely out outdoor warning sirens to get your information!  Follow our forecasts on TV, on the web, and on social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook.  The "Severe" tab at WTVM.com also has a lot of great resources, as does the "Radar and Satellite" tab.
