FIRST ALERT: Isolated rain showers Tuesday, potential for severe weather Wednesday--your forecast on WAFF 48 News Today

(WAFF) -

Unseasonably warm temperatures, strong storms possible

Temperatures will remain unseasonably warm all week with highs today topping out close to 70 and we're continuing to monitor the potential for strong-to-severe storms Wednesday evening. It’s a mild start to Tuesday with temperatures topping out near 60.

We're continuing to monitor the big weather maker. By Wednesday afternoon, strong storms should develop to our west across Mississippi and west Tennessee ahead of a cold front. 

These storms will track east into the evening, but it’s possible that a few storms could pop up here in the Valley, too. Damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph and isolated tornadoes could accompany those storms. Any breaks in the clouds during the afternoon could enhance the potential for stronger storms.

Stevens is accused of gunning down his ex-wife in front of her bakery in Decatur last month. Court records show that she had previously filed for a protection order from Stevens, who had allegedly harassed her in the past.
