SMALL RISK OF SEVERE WEATHER CONTINUES… Showers and thunderstorms continue to move eastward from Mississippi into southwest Alabama as of 3:10PM. The Storm Prediction Center continues to outlook much of our region in their Level 2 “slight” risk zone, meaning an isolated severe storm will be possible over the next few hours. Please continue to have a way to receive urgent weather warnings over the next few hours. We also are observing several small, yet heavy rain showers near Atmore, Poarch, Huxford, and several other spots across our region. That’s the summary. Here are the details…

MAIN CONCERN: FRONT LINE OF STORMS… You can see in the attached radar animation that SPC has trimmed much of the western flank of our region OUT of the severe weather risk zones. Once the initial, front line of storms moves through your location, the severe weather risk will drop substantially. This means that most of us remain in the low-end severe weather risk zones over the next few hours. Again, I’m not expecting major issues, but an isolated tornado or two is certainly not out of the question. A few damaging wind gusts in the stronger storms that happen this afternoon are also possible. This entire complex of showers and thunderstorms will continue to move eastward. You can keep up with the progress of the line of storms in the all new version of the RedZone Weather app in the Interactive Radar section.

SPOTTY SHOWERS AHEAD OF THE LINE… Heavy bursts of rain from small showers are being observed near Atmore, Poarch, Huxford, Dixie, Damascus, Owassa, and Uriah at the time this update is being produced as of 3:10PM. Spotty showers will continue to develop and lift northward out ahead of the main line of storms. We’ll have to closely monitor these showers to see if low-level rotation develops in any of them, but so far that has not happened.
