First Alert Weather: Severe storms and possible isolated tornadoes over the weekend

This is the system that will bring us active weather into the weekend. The bulk of the activity will move through South MS between noon and 6 PM, but rain and the potential for strong storms will continue through the night before clearing early Sunday.

It's another summer-like day for us, but with a few more clouds. "1" to 2" of rain (with possible minor street flooding), damaging wind (up 40 to 60 mph), and the possibility of downed trees and power lines. As a result, Sunday has been declared a First Alert Day. This will add to the instability of the atmosphere and will aid in the development of some strong storms which could turn severe. This will increase winds and very warm air will move into the Midlands for Saturday. However an isolated tornado can not be ruled out.

When will severe weather arrive where I live? . The main line of storms leftover from last night, will begin to push into our westernmost areas around 9-10 AM Sunday. The best chance of this happening would be from western North Carolina toward Southside Virginia, but it is far from certain these "discrete" storms will develop at all.

Temperatures are hovering around 80 degrees this afternoon with a sunny sky across Alabama.

The central USA experienced a severe storms outbreak on Friday. Highs temperatures only recover into the mid 60s.
