Severe weather threat, then a BIG drop in temperature!

Darin HammondMar 01, 2017

The National Weather Service received reports of a tornado in Charles County but could not confirm that one touched down as of Saturday night.

Beginning around 10 p.m. Tuesday, an pre-frontal line of thunderstorms is expected to begin to move in to our in counties. The overnight and early a.m. hours are the most risky times for severe weather because so many people are asleep and unprepared. The greatest risk for severe storms looks to be from Greenup to Effingham to Vandalia south into southern and southeastern IL. In an advisory, the National Weather Service office in Little Rock states that "all modes of severe weather are possible", and that the threat includes "a high risk of night time tornadoes".

Several strong, long track tornadoes are also possible.

"We will have cold air attempting to replace the mild, moist air, and that's a recipe for potentially severe storms", Robinson said. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has a (#2) Slight Risk of severe weather tomorrow from the ArkLaTex Northeastward through the Lower/Middle MS Valley and into the Ohio Valley. The main concern is damaging straight line winds over 60 miles per hour tracking from west to east across the state.

Robinson said it's likely Wednesday's storms will be weaker at the coast and stronger west of the Garden State Parkway because shore temperatures are much cooler. A line of thunderstorms will also accompany the front, increasing the threat for high wind and large hail late Tuesday or early Wednesday. A WIND ADVISORY has already been issued for Wednesday in advance of winds in excess of 20 miles per hour.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: The weather stays dry with a low warming trend. Highs are only expected to reach the mid-40s and snow is expected to develop around noon.
