Severe weather threat winds down
A few tornadoes, damaging wind gusts, hail, and flash flooding are all possible
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Our First Alert Weather Day has been cancelled, as the risk of severe weather has ended for WSFA’s assigned coverage area. For many, the morning has brought a quick improvement with drier air punching into the state. In southeast Alabama, a cluster of storms will continue through 7-8am. Isolated tornadoes and flash flooding are possible in the Wiregrass counties, but the rest of central and south Alabama should avoid any additional severe weather problems.
Once this system clears the region later this morning, skies will become partly cloudy with afternoon highs warming into the upper 60s to middle 70s. The remainder of the week and the upcoming weekend are still looking dry and cooler than normal. Highs will mainly be in the upper 60s Thursday through Sunday with a good deal of sunshine each afternoon. For perspective, the average high in late March is 73-75 degrees.
Overnight lows will be down in the lower 40s most nights during this stretch. There will be a good helping of 30s Saturday night, but that should be the only night with widespread 30s. Frost is not officially in the forecast, but some patchy frost in rural and low-lying areas will certainly be possible.
Temps warm right back up heading into next week with dry conditions persisting through at least the end of the day Tuesday. The next chance of rain arrives for the middle of next week.
