FEW STRONG STORMS POSSIBLE OVERNIGHT… The Storm Prediction Center has opted to expand the convective outlook severe weather risk zones a bit farther south. We note that portions of Washington, Clarke, and Choctaw counties are now included in the Level 2 (out of 5) “slight” risk zone. This means that isolated severe storms may be possible in the overnight hours. There is a good bit of uncertainty with this, however, as the storms are likely to initiate well to our northwest. I expect most of the severe weather issues to happen across northern Mississippi and northern Alabama. The tornado risk tonight is very, very low. The main concern is damaging straight line winds in the stronger storms.
If you haven’t already, be sure to visit the Alerts tab here in the RZWeather app to customize the alert experience you would like to receive. All you have to do is tap that large, yellow “Alert Settings” button and toggle ON the alerts you would like to get.
I’ll have plenty of updates here in the app in the hours ahead.
