TORNADO WATCH CANCELLED… The National Weather Service has cancelled the tornado watch that was in effect for Covington, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, and Crenshaw counties. The severe weather risk across south Alabama and northwest Florida is rapidly ending.
LINE OF SHOWERS MOVING EAST… We note a heavy, but thin, band of showers and thunderstorms are currently pushing through northern Monroe, Butler, Conecuh, and Escambia counties in Alabama. There is nothing severe involved, and this line of showers will continue pushing to the east into Covington and Crenshaw counties within the next 90 minutes.
CLEARING SKIES OVERNIGHT… Skies will start to clear from west to east and when we wake up Monday morning, skies will likely be partly cloudy across the region. After tonight, the next chance of rain happens on Tuesday P.M. when a few isolated showers will be possible.
NEXT UPDATE/THANK YOU… My next video update will be posted by 7:15AM here in the RedZone Weather app and on Facebook. Thank you to everyone who watched, shared, liked, and commented on our severe weather coverage throughout the day. Today (Sunday, April 22, 2018) will go down as the PRIME example of why we must be diligent when we have a low-end, Level 1 “marginal” severe weather risk in place. The good news – no severe weather is expected Monday through Friday, as of now. Have a nice evening!
