FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY for severe storms risk Wednesday

FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY for severe storms risk Wednesday

A cold front is working across the middle of the country Tuesday morning and will be pushing through southeast Louisiana and southern MS later tonight and tomorrow morning.

Strong-to-severe storms may be possible across North Alabama today as a squall line sweeps across the region ahead of a cold front.

The main concern, WLKY said, will be straight-line damaging wind gusts in excess of 60 miles per hour. An isolated tornado or two will be possible, particularly across east Texas and northwest Louisiana during the afternoon.

To the west of the Golden Triangle, golf-ball-size hail will also be a possibility.

The system notifies locals with emergency information through phone calls, text messages, emails and social media.

However, Tuesday evening between 7 p.m. and 12 a.m. will be the best timeframe for storms around Central Texas as the cold front moves through. Lows will fall into the mid 30s.

"Anytime there is a potential for 20 to 30 mile per hour winds, that could be a problem", said Stanforth. Behind the warm front is a return to Spring like reading with high temperatures late Wednesday morning getting close to 70 degrees. The threat level for South MS is a 1 or 2 on a scale that goes as high as 5; so that's a low or very low threat. It gets cold enough for some lake effect snow Wednesday night.

Tuesday Afternoon: Any wintry mix should turn to all rain as we warm to 40° across southeastern MI.
