Weather Talk: Make a plan for tornado and thunderstorm season

According to the NWS, showers and thunderstorms are possible Friday late afternoon through the weekend.

A severe thunderstorm watch issued earlier for part of the state has expired, and most of the storms were under severe limits as of 6 a.m.as they tracked eastward.

Severe weather is predicted to arrive in the Texarkana area around 11 a.m. The greatest concern for severe storms still appears to be Marion, Lamar, Winston, Walker, Fayette, Pickens, Tuscaloosa, Sumter, Hale, and Greene Counties. Some strong wind gusts will occur within the storms.

There is still a chance a few storms could become severe.

In addition to the potential for severe weather, these storms will be efficient rain producers and heavy rain is likely in many spots, even for those that do not see severe storms.

The front will return north Friday into Saturday.

Temperatures warm to near 90° again for Friday and Saturday afternoon. A north northwest wind of 11 to 16 miles per hour will gust as high as 25 miles per hour.

The next best chance of rain will arrive with a stronger front later in the day on Sunday and continue into Monday.

Rain likely by Tuesday night through Thursday with totals in some spots picking up over an inch!

We'll take a break from the severe weather Thursday and probably Friday.
