LOW-END SEVERE WEATHER RISK THIS EVENING… The Storm Prediction Center has opted to upgrade part of our local area into their Level 1 (out of 5) marginal severe weather risk valid for later today into tonight. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are moving into our area from the west. Odds are vast majority of south Alabama and northwest Florida will have no major severe weather issues over the next 24 hours, but an isolated severe storm near the coast cannot be ruled out. The main concern through this evening will be the low-end risk of an isolated tornado or two, damaging straight line winds in the stronger storms, and heavy downpours of rain. We’re also looking ahead to some much cooler air moving into our area tonight, paving the way for a COLD Monday and Tuesday. Let’s talk details…

SEVERE WEATHER RISK NEAR THE COAST… The Level 1, low-end risk is in place for parts of Mobile, Baldwin, Escambia (FL), Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, and Walton counties. Communities along and south of Interstate 10 have the highest risk of experiencing a strong to severe storm this evening. This includes (but is not limited to) areas near Mobile, Pensacola, Destin, Fort Walton Beach, Niceville, Milton, Navarre, Gulf Breeze, Pensacola Beach, Molino, Chumuckla, Warrington, Perdido Key, Orange Beach, Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan, Dauphin Island, Foley, Elberta, Robertsdale, Silverhill, Fairhope, Daphne, Spanish Fort, Bay Minette, Bayou La Batre, Prichard, Saraland, and Satsuma.

NO ISSUES EXPECTED INLAND… No severe weather issues are expected across inland areas today as the warm front causing this low-end severe weather potential will not reach these areas. Stable air will likely be in place across Washington, Clarke, Monroe, Butler, Conecuh, Escambia (AL), and Covington counties for the duration of this event.

STORM TIMING… The low-end risk of severe weather/isolated tornadoes will happen from 2PM to 9PM CST today (Sunday, November 25, 2018). The risk will progressively shift eastward throughout the evening.

POTENTIAL HAZARDS… Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected across the region this afternoon into the evening hours. A brief, spin-up tornado will be the main concern for coastal areas. A few of the stronger storms may become capable of producing isolated instances of damaging straight line winds. The risk of large hail today is very low. The risk of flash flooding is also low, as this will likely NOT be a long-duration rain event for any given spot.

STORMS TO MOVE OUT TONIGHT… Showers and thunderstorms will kick out of our area to the east later this evening. Cold, dry air will move into south Alabama and northwest Florida behind a cold front that will move by overnight.

COLD MONDAY & TUESDAY… Skies will become clear on Monday, meaning any heat content in the atmosphere will easily escape. Highs on Monday will peak around 55°. The clear skies will allow temperatures to fall to around 30-32° by daybreak on Tuesday morning.

SUNNY THROUGH THURSDAY… Temperatures will slowly rebound throughout the week, peaking around 70° by Friday. Plenty of sunshine is expected Monday P.M. and on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

TROPICS QUIET… We are in the home stretch of hurricane season, which officially ends on Friday! No tropical storms are expected to form in the north Atlantic, Caribbean Sea, or Gulf of Mexico.
