STRONG STORMS ENTERING COVINGTON COUNTY… The main line of thunderstorms we’ve been tracking all day is about to move into communities in northwest Covington County like Loango, Brooks, Red Level, and River Falls. So far, these storms remain under severe limits. This line of storms will move across Covington County over the next hour or so.

CLARIFICATION ABOUT TORNADO WATCH… If it seems strange to you that Covington and Okaloosa counties are currently NOT included in a tornado watch despite being surrounded by counties that ARE included, you’re not alone. The reason why: The earlier tornado watch that was issued late this morning for counties to the east did not include Covington and Okaloosa counties. The NEW tornado watch that has been issued for southeast Alabama and northwest Florida (that is valid until 9PM CST) was issued by the local weather service office responsible for those counties (NWS Tallahassee). NWS Mobile is the office responsible for issuing watches and warnings for Covington and Okaloosa counties. NWS Mobile has decided, in their assessment, that the severe weather probability isn’t high enough to extend the tornado watch into Covington and Okaloosa counties at this time. I tend to agree with that assessment.

LINE OF STORMS REMAINS WEAK… Central Alabama continues to have the tornado warning problems today with the trailing line of thunderstorms in our area remaining much weaker. NWS Mobile has just cancelled the tornado watch for Monroe and Wilcox counties in south Alabama.

GROWING LIST OF ALL CLEAR ZONES… We can add all parts of Monroe and Wilcox counties into the growing list of counties where the severe weather risk has ended. ALL CLEAR for all parts of Monroe, Wilcox, Clarke, Choctaw, Marengo, and Mobile counties. Looks like Baldwin County will be the next to get an “all clear” as showers and storms there continue to be weak.

TORNADO WARNING NORTH OF MONTGOMERY… The main line of storms pushing across Alabama continues to produce brief, spin-up tornadoes. This new tornado warning is in effect until 3:15PM for parts of southern Coosa, northern Elmore, and far southwestern Tallapoosa counties in central Alabama. Note that Chilton and Autauga counties have been cancelled OUT of the tornado warnings as the threat is east of those counties now.

ALL CLEAR FOR MOBILE COUNTY… The severe weather risk has ended for all of Mobile County, AL as the decaying main line of storms moves east. The tornado watch will be cancelled shortly for Mobile County.

We have given an “all clear” to all of Choctaw, Washington, Clarke, and Mobile counties as the line of storms continues to move east. Again, a low-end risk of severe weather continues to the east of the main line of storms. Once the line moves through your location, the severe weather risk will come to an end as cooler, drier air starts filtering in from the northwest.

STORMS WEAKENING; THREAT NOT OVER YET… The main line of thunderstorms that is sliding across our area continues to show an overall pattern of weakening. There are some parts of the line of storms that are clearly on the strong side, however. The strongest storms are near Stockton, Tensaw, Blacksher, and Gopher Hill in northern Baldwin County. This goes to show that the severe weather risk is not over just yet, but clearly the risk has lessened somewhat. We still could have a tornado warning over the next few hours as this line moves east.

CONFIRMED TORNADO TO THE NORTH… A Tornado Warning continues until 2:30PM for much of southern and central Autauga County in central Alabama. There was a confirmed tornado about ten minutes ago near Garden Island just east of Selma. It was likely a brief, weak tornado, but a TDS or Tornadic Debris Signature was observed nonetheless. If you’re in Prattville, Autaugaville, or areas near Winslow, stay sheltered!

We can give these communities an ALL CLEAR as of 12:56PM.

If your community is in our local area and is not listed above, the threat has NOT ended for you yet as the main line of storms has not moved through your location.

SEVERE LINE OF STORMS MOVING EAST… The strongest storms in Alabama at the moment are clearly in Clarke and Washington counties in west Alabama, where the main line of thunderstorms we are tracking today continues to produce bowing segments. These segments are where we could have damaging straight line winds shortly, which is why a severe thunderstorm warning is in effect. If you’re in Thomasville, Fulton, Springfield, Chilton, Grove Hill, Scyrene, Toddtown, Jackson, or Leroy, the line of storms is about to move into your area.

SMALL STORMS OUT AHEAD OF MAIN LINE… We’re also tracking a few small showers and storms in Butler, Covington, Okaloosa, and Santa Rosa counties. These small showers are producing heavy rain and some lightning, but are currently not severe. The main severe weather risk today is associated with the main line of storms currently moving through west Alabama.

TORNADO WATCH TILL 5PM… The tornado watch continues for southwest Alabama and northwest Florida until 5PM. The severe weather risk will end completely once the main line of storms passes through your location.

ALL CLEAR… We can give an “all clear” at this point to all locations in Choctaw County as the line of storms is now east of the entirety of that county. In addition, the severe weather risk is now over for Millry in west Alabama as the line of storms is east of there.

ISOLATED TORNADOES & DAMAGING WINDS POSSIBLE TODAY… Have a way to receive urgent weather warnings today as a few tornadoes and damaging wind gusts will be possible in the scattered severe storms that are expected to move across our region this afternoon. Normally we do not post a RZW forecast video on Saturday, but we have a chance of tornado warnings today thus we want to bring you the very latest. The threat assessment has not changed since last night: The Storm Prediction Center has included all of south Alabama and northwest Florida in their Level 2 (out of 5) “slight risk” zone valid for today, meaning isolated tornadoes and damaging wind gusts will be the main concerns as a line of storms moves east. There also is a small chance that we could see a few supercell storms in west Alabama. Model trends continue to support a bit more atmospheric instability that could lead to more instances of severe storms happening as the line of storms moves through. We’re also watching temperatures tumble behind the cold front that will move across our region later this evening. Again, please have a way to get the warnings today. Live streaming tornado warning coverage will be provided in the RedZone Weather app as needed. That’s your summary. Here are all the details…

LEVEL 2 SEVERE WEATHER RISK TODAY… All of south Alabama and northwest Florida is included in the Level 2 (out of 5) risk. A Level 2 risk means scattered severe storms could happen. “Scattered severe storms” means a few isolated tornadoes and damaging wind gusts.

WHO IS INVOLVED? OUR ENTIRE LOCAL AREA… This has not changed since last night. Locally, the following communities are included in the Level 2 risk zone: Mobile, Pensacola, Fort Walton Beach, Destin, Milton, Jay, Berrydale, Munson, Crestview, Laurel Hill, Andalusia, Florala, Bayou La Batre, Coden, Dauphin Island, Citronelle, Mt. Vernon, Saraland, Satsuma, Wilmer, Fairhope, Silverhill, Foley, Robertsdale, Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, Perdidio Key, Daphne, Spanish Fort, Point Clear, Bay Minette, Tensaw, Stockton, Perdido, Loxley, Walnut Hill, Jay, Century, Bratt, Atmore, Poarch, Huxford, Brewton, Flomaton, Evergreen, Castleberry, Lyeffion, Repton, Greenville, Georgiana, Chapman, Monroeville, Uriah, Megargal, Beatrice, Perdue Hill, Tunnel Springs, Thomasville, Grove Hill, Jackson, Coffeeville, Gosport, Chatom, Millry, Leroy, McIntosh, and Fruitdale. We note Tuscaloosa, Demopolis, Camden, and Selma are included in the Level 2 risk in central Alabama.

RISK TIMES… The risk of severe weather will last from 10AM today (Saturday) to 7PM this evening for south Alabama and northwest Florida. Storms will likely enter west Alabama from Mississippi in the late morning hours. These storms will move across our region from west to east through the afternoon hours.

POTENTIAL HAZARDS… The concern today will be due to the isolated risk of isolated, brief tornadoes and damaging straight line winds in the stronger storms that happen. While there will be somewhat of a ‘mismatch’ of severe weather ingredients (with greater shear values to our north and instability fairly limited to the south), there could be one or two tornadoes and a few instances of damage due to strong winds in any storms that can “go severe.” Flash flooding risks will be lower in this system due to the fast forward motion of the line of storms. There could be pea- or dime-size hail in the stronger storms, but larger hail is not expected.

TORNADO WARNING POLICY… Anytime there is a tornado warning for any part of our 12 county primary coverage area, we stream uninterrupted severe weather coverage in the RedZone Weather app and on Facebook Live. See redzoneweather.com/coverage for more information about our coverage commitment.

COLD AIR MOVES IN TONIGHT… After the passage of the cold front that is causing this severe weather potential, significantly colder air will move into our region from the northwest tonight into Sunday. While temperatures will likely not be AS cold as initially indicated, our entire region will likely plunge into the 20s by Monday morning. The daytime hours of Monday look to be a bit warmer than we initially expected as well. High temperatures on Monday will surge into the 50s.

MORE RAIN NEXT WEEK… Another cold front is set to approach our area in the middle part of next week. Rain chances will be elevated late Tuesday into Wednesday. It’s too early to say whether severe weather will be a potential issue. Early model indications point to limited instability, likely meaning no severe weather risk for midweek. Let’s get through this low-end severe weather risk today then we will start focusing on midweek in our forecast videos starting Sunday.

APP ALERTS… Be sure to download the free RedZone Weather app (redzoneweather.com/app is the link for the free download) in your respective (iOS & Android) app store. I’ll have plenty of updates throughout the day as we track the storms moving in from the west. Once you have the app downloaded, visit the Alerts tab (bottom right corner) and tap the large, yellow “Alert Settings” button to customize the alerts you’d like to receive straight from me. I’ll be sending quite a few Low-Level Alerts today.

NEXT UPDATES… MANY updates will be posted throughout the day in the RedZone Weather app. I will be on Facebook LIVE and in the live streaming video tab of the RZW app as needed when tornado warnings are required for our area. Let me know if you have specific questions! Have a good Saturday!

EXPANDED LEVEL 2 RISK FOR SEVERE STORMS SATURDAY… The Storm Prediction Center has expanded the Level 2 (out of 5) “slight risk” zone to include the entirety of our local area in south Alabama and northwest Florida. Isolated tornadoes and damaging wind gusts will be the main concerns as a line of storms moves east. There also is a small chance that we could see a few supercell storms in west Alabama. Model trends continue to support a bit more atmospheric instability that could lead to more instances of severe storms during the daytime hours of Saturday across our region. Have a way to get the warnings on Saturday! That’s the summary, here are a few more Friday evening notes…

LEVEL 2 SEVERE WEATHER RISK FOR SATURDAY… All of south Alabama and northwest Florida is now included in the Level 2 (out of 5) risk. The risk area has been expanded somewhat since this morning. A Level 2 risk means scattered severe storms could happen. “Scattered severe storms” means a few isolated tornadoes and damaging wind gusts.

LEVEL 2 SEVERE WEATHER RISK FOR SATURDAY… Isolated rain showers are possible across the region on this Friday ahead of a low-end severe weather risk shaping up for Saturday across south Alabama and northwest Florida. Temperatures will surge into the upper-60s and low-70s this afternoon. That is too warm for January and a sign that changes are on the way. The Storm Prediction Center has included much of our local area in their Level 2 (out of 5) severe weather risk valid for Saturday, meaning isolated strong to severe storms will be possible. We’re also looking ahead to colder temperatures on Sunday into Monday. Plenty to discuss in the weather department this morning. Let’s go…

ISOLATED SHOWERS & WARMER TODAY… You’ll probably notice the southerly flow off of the Gulf of Mexico when you step outside today. Humidity values are increasing ahead of the arrival of a strong cold front that will move by late on Saturday. Isolated showers are possible throughout the day. High temperatures will peak around 70° this afternoon. No severe weather is expected today and thunderstorms should remain to our west today.

NOTE ABOUT THE GRAPHICS… The graphics you see in the RZW forecast video show the Level 1 risk only as this video was produced before SPC introduced the upgraded risk. See the detailed paragraphs below describing who is involved in the updated risk zones…

LEVEL 2 SEVERE WEATHER RISK FOR SATURDAY… All of south Alabama and norhtwest Florida has at least some risk of severe weather on Saturday. The Storm Prediction Center has included much of our area in their Level 2, “slight risk” zone where scattered severe storms could happen. Locally, the following communities are included in the Level 2 risk zone: Mobile, Citronelle, Mt. Vernon, Saraland, Satsuma, Wilmer, Daphne, Spanish Fort, Point Clear, Bay Minette, Tensaw, Stockton, Perdido, Loxley, Walnut Hill, Jay, Century, Bratt, Atmore, Poarch, Huxford, Brewton, Flomaton, Evergreen, Castleberry, Lyeffion, Repton, Greenville, Georgiana, Chapman, Monroeville, Uriah, Megargal, Beatrice, Perdue Hill, Tunnel Springs, Thomasville, Grove Hill, Jackson, Coffeeville, Gosport, Chatom, Millry, Leroy, McIntosh, Sunflower, and Fruitdale. These are the areas where stronger storms are more likely to occur on Saturday. We note Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Montgomery, Talladega, Demopolis, Camden, Selma, Clanton, and Alexander City are included in the Level 2 risk in central Alabama.

LEVEL 1 RISK FOR EVERYONE ELSE… If you’re not included in the Level 2 risk zone in our area, then you’re definitely included in the lower-end, Level 1 risk zone, where the atmosphere won’t be AS conducive for strong storm development. The following places are included in that zone… Pensacola, Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, Perdido Key, Elberta, Foley, Silverhill, Robertsdale, Bayou La Batre, Dauphin Island, Navarre, Destin, Crestview, Laurel Hill, Munson, Andalusia, Opp, Florala, Troy, Dothan, Enterprise, Auburn, Elba, Geneva, Abbeville, Eufaula, and Daleville.

STORM TIMING… The risk of severe weather will last from 10AM Saturday to 7PM Saturday for south Alabama and northwest Florida. Storms will likely enter west Alabama from Mississippi in the late morning hours. These storms will move across our region from west to east through the Saturday afternoon hours.

POTENTIAL HAZARDS… The concern on Saturday will be due to the low-end risk of isolated, brief tornadoes and damaging straight line winds in the stronger storms that happen. While there will be somewhat of a ‘mismatch’ of severe weather ingredients (with greater shear values to our north and instability fairly limited to the south), there could be one or two tornadoes and a few instances of damage due to strong winds in any storms that can “go severe.”

TORNADO WARNING POLICY… Anytime there is a tornado warning for any part of our 12 county primary coverage area, we stream uninterrupted severe weather coverage in the RedZone Weather app and on Facebook Live. See redzoneweather.com/coverage for more information about our coverage commitment.

MUCH COLDER SUNDAY… After the passage of the cold front that is causing this low-end severe weather potential, significantly colder air will move into our region from the northwest late Saturday into Sunday. While temperatures will likely not be AS cold as initially indicated, our entire region will likely plunge into the 20s by Monday morning. The daytime hours of Monday look to be a bit warmer than we initially expected as well. High temperatures on Monday will surge into the 50s.

LOOKING AHEAD TO NEXT WEEK… Another cold front is set to approach our area in the middle part of next week. Rain chances will be elevated late Tuesday into Wednesday. It’s too early to say whether severe weather will be a potential issue, but that is a possibility we will need to monitor. Let’s get through this low-end severe weather risk on Saturday then we will start focusing on midweek of the upcoming week.

ISOLATED STRONG STORMS POSSIBLE SATURDAY… The Storm Prediction Center has included all of south Alabama and northwest Florida in their Level 1 (out of 5) marginal severe weather risk zone valid for the daytime hours of Saturday. Isolated tornadoes and damaging straight line winds will be the main concerns in the stronger storms that happen. This will be a linear storm threat that moves in from Mississippi, most likely in the late morning or early afternoon hours on Saturday. If tornado warnings are required for any part of our area, we will go LIVE per our regular coverage commitment to you. That is the summary, below are the details…

MARGINAL SEVERE WEATHER RISK FOR SATURDAY… ALL of our local area in south Alabama and northwest Florida is included in the Level 1 (out of 5) marginal severe weather risk zone valid for Saturday as defined by the Storm Prediction Center. In addition, all zones in southeast and central Alabama are included in the low-end risk zone. Basically everyone south of a line from Hamilton to Oneonta to Roanoke is included in this low-end risk, including Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Auburn, Montgomery, Selma, Demopolis, Greenville, Troy, Dothan, Thomasville, Monroeville, Evergreen, Atmore, Brewton, Mobile, Fairhope, Pensacola, Destin, Panama City, and surrounding areas.

CONCERNS: BRIEF TORNADOES & DAMAGING WIND GUSTS… Most of the thunderstorms that move across our region on Saturday should be “tame,” but there could be a few, brief severe thunderstorms capable of producing an isolated tornado or a brief gust of damaging wind. This is a typical “high shear, low CAPE” winter severe weather setup for our local area, meaning that the “severe weather ingredients” are somewhat mismatched. The greater instability values will be near the Alabama and northwest Florida beaches with the greater wind/shear being to the north over our inland counties.

TIMING OF THE STORMS… Showers will increase in coverage across the region Saturday morning. The severe weather risk will start around 10AM and last until the line of storms moves east of our local area, most likely around 5PM. This means that during the daytime hours of Saturday, we need you to have a way to receive urgent weather warnings. Please keep this in mind especially if you’re going to be outside hunting or engaged in any activity away from your cell phone. I’ll have plenty of updates in the RedZone Weather app throughout the day on Saturday.

TORNADO WARNING POLICY… Anytime there is a tornado warning for any part of our 12 county primary coverage area, we stream uninterrupted severe weather coverage in the RedZone Weather app and on Facebook Live. See redzoneweather.com/coverage for more information about our coverage commitment. Covington, Butler, Conecuh, Escambia (AL), Monroe, Clarke, Washington, Mobile, and Baldwin counties are our commitment counties in south Alabama. Santa Rosa, Escambia (FL), and Okaloosa counties are the commitment counties in northwest Florida.

MUCH COLDER SUNDAY… After the passage of the cold front that is causing this low-end severe weather potential, significantly colder air will move into our region from the northwest late Saturday into Sunday. While temperatures will likely not be AS cold as initially indicated, our entire region will likely plunge into the 20s by Monday morning. The daytime hours of Monday look to be a bit warmer than we initially expected as well. High temperatures on Monday will surge into the 50s.

APP ALERTS… Be sure to download the free RedZone Weather app (redzoneweather.com/app is the link for the free download) in your respective (iOS & Android) app store. I’ll have plenty of updates throughout the day on Saturday as we track the storms moving in from the west. Once you have the app downloaded, visit the Alerts tab (bottom right corner) and tap the large, yellow “Alert Settings” button to customize the alerts you’d like to receive straight from me. I’ll be sending quite a few Low-Level Alerts over the next few days.

Let me know if you have any questions. My next #rzw forecast video will be posted by 7:15AM on Friday morning here on Facebook and in the RedZone Weather app. Enjoy your evening!
