SEVERE WEATHER RISK ENDING FOR LOCAL AREA… The tornado risk has ended for all parts of our local area except southern Okaloosa County late on this Thursday morning. This means we can give an ALL CLEAR to all parts of Escambia (AL), Mobile, Baldwin, Washington, Choctaw, Clarke, Wilcox, Monroe, Butler, Crenshaw, and Covington counties. If you’re in northwest Florida, I’ll be able to give all of our counties there an all clear within the next hour or so.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH TO OUR EAST… The main line of storms continues to push eastward into southeast Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. Much of the Wiregrass region and the Florida Panhandle is now under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch valid until 2PM. The overall tornado risk is now much lower for all areas, although it is not a ZERO risk just yet for areas along and east of the squall line of storms.

CLOUDS & RAIN TO LINGER… There will be scattered showers and thunderstorms that continue across south Alabama and northwest Florida over the next 4-6 hours despite the threat of severe weather coming to an end. You may hear some thunder and see some lightning in addition to very heavy downpours of rain at times.

FRIDAY & WEEKEND PREVIEW… Rain will clear out later this evening. Clouds could persist into Friday for many spots across the region, although there may be some sunshine in the mix. Temperatures on Friday will struggle to hit the 70 degree mark as cold, dry air moves in from the northwest. Friday Night Lights looks dry and cool across the region with temperatures in the 50s likely. Overnight lows by Saturday morning will be around 43 degrees in many spots locally.
