MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A line of storms is moving through parts of southeast Alabama early this Sunday morning. This line brought multiple Tornado Warnings and Severe Thunderstorm Warnings to parts of Mississippi and Alabama, but now that it has entered the Wiregrass, the threat of severe weather has significantly diminished.
The severe weather threat is low all around, but the greatest risk is damaging wind gusts. With a wet ground, trees could be uprooted more easily. We also cannot rule out a brief tornado.
To err on the side of caution, you need multiple, reliable ways of receiving weather warnings that are capable of waking you up overnight, just in case. And, you need to pick a safe place within your home to go in the event a tornado warning is issued for your location, and everyone in your home needs to know where that “safe place” is located.
The rain will end quickly Sunday morning, then much cooler air will arrive . Afternoon temperatures will stay in the 60s, a solid 20 degrees cooler than Saturday! Cool, dry weather continues Monday and Tuesday, before more rain arrives by the middle of next week.
