The biggest risk with the storms will be wind gusts of 50 to 65 miles per hour.

The line of storms has departed Alabama, bringing our risk of severe weather to a close. It will be cloudy and much cooler with highs in the 60s. Because of the expected progression of this line of storms in the Sunday morning hours, the system may lose some ability to maintain its organization, and some (but not complete) weakening is possible. The sun will shine bright once again tomorrow and temperatures will warm up a little bit more to near 70°.

Unfortunately, we have another shot of cold air and even more snow chances by early Monday morning. It still looks like the "greatest" threat of severe storms will be southwest of the Huntsville area through Central and South Alabama Saturday afternoon. Check back with us for updates!


"We are asking you to be very cognizant of flooding under overpasses", he said. Exceptional state drought conditions are now showing up across extreme northern Swisher, Briscoe and Hall County. "As of Saturday evening, 1.07" of rain has fallen in Lubbock at the airport in 2018.

Sunset: 8:13 p.m. Winds will increase on Monday and Tuesday from the south 20-30 miles per hour. Lows around 68. Wind S 10-20 miles per hour. Increasing valley rain and higher mountain snow above 7,500' with several inches likely Sunday night through Monday night. Strong winds aloft translating to the surface in downdrafts will bring the potential of damaging winds - hard to say if this will be sporadic or fairly widespread.

Sunday Night: A clear sky with lows in the middle 40s. A warming trend will begin Wednesday and Thursday as temperatures will climb to the upper 70s to near 80. Surface winds will be increasing Monday afternoon 15 to 25 miles per hour and gusting at times to 30 miles per hour.
