NO WARNINGS LOCALLY, FOR NOW… The severe thunderstorm warning that was in effect for northwest Covington and southern Crenshaw counties has expired as of 12:15AM. As of this moment, we are without any severe thunderstorm warnings. Several isolated strong storms continue across our local area in northern Monroe, northern Conecuh, northern Clarke, and southern Butler counties.
LOW-END SEVERE RISK CONTINUES… Much of our local area remains in a Level 1 (out of 5), low-end, marginal severe weather risk through 6AM. This means that isolated, strong storms will be possible. The tornado threat overnight is very, very low, but the threat of damaging winds and large hail in the stronger storms are the primary concerns. Please have a way to get the warnings before you go to sleep.
Another round of afternoon pop-up thunderstorms is expected later today (Sunday).
TAP “LATEST”… I will be closely monitoring radar trends over the next few hours. I’ll let you know here in the RZWeather app and on Twitter if we have more severe thunderstorm warnings issued. You probably observed that during severe thunderstorm warnings, posts are far more frequent here in the app. If you don’t see a post for awhile, you can always tap the “Latest” tab to refresh the content. We will be changing this button to the word “Refresh” in an app update soon to make this more obvious to users.
