Strong Thunderstorms Possible Today & Tomorrow

MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) - The weather to start today will be fairly quiet with a chance of a few passing showers accompanied by very warm temperatures.There is also potential of patchy fog during the early part of today so if you are headed out early be a little extra careful and don't forget to use the low beams.

By this afternoon our weather will be changing due to an approaching storm system. This system will increase the chance of thunderstorms. From this afternoon afternoon through Monday, there will be potential of some stronger thunderstorms and there is a small possibility of severe weather. Right now potential threats include damaging winds, hail, and an isolated tornado can't be ruled out. Our viewing area is included in the severe weather outlook for both Sunday and Monday. 

Today: The northern half of the News 5 area (mostly north of i-10) are included in either a slight risk of severe weather. A slight risk (threat level 2 out of 5) means that severe weather is possible and you should be aware of the weather. Just south of the slight risk is a marginal risk (1/5) which covers most counties north of the coast. This outlook is due to strong thunderstorms being possible from the afternoon hours into tonight.

Monday: The slight risk shifts farther east and only encompasses the extreme northeastern parts of Monroe and Conecuh Counties. The rest of the viewing area is included in a marginal risk. Thunderstorms will be possible from the overnight hours Sunday into Monday afternoon. Strong thunderstorms may linger into Monday evening, but the threat goes away after a cold front pushes through by Monday night.

With the possibility of severe weather now is a good time to go over your severe weather safety plan and if you don't have a plan it's always better to have one just in case. A safety plan includes things like knowing your safe place, having an emergency kit, having a communication plan, and having multiple sources to receive warnings.

By Monday night we will start to clear on the back side of the cold front. As we go from Tuesday through the rest of the work week we will settle into a tranquil and relatively cool pattern. 

On Tuesday afternoon we will top out near 70 for highs, but Tuesday night we are in the 40s for lows.

Wednesday and Thursday both brings highs in the middle to upper 60s with plenty of sunshine and chilly mornings, in the lower to middle 40s.
