FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Unseasonably warm temperatures, monitoring potential for severe storms

(WAFF) -

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. Skies will be mostly cloudy and there could be a few foggy spots as well as isolated rain showers that may slow you down on your morning commute. Isolated showers are possible into the afternoon with a higher chance for rain in the Valley this evening. You may hear a few rumbles of thunder, but no severe weather is expected.

Wednesday will start warm with lows only dropping into the lower 60s and highs pushing into the low-to-mid 70s. 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. 

But there are some factors that may limit that potential. Scattered rain showers may develop through the day and that would have a stabilizing effect.  Stronger storms along the Gulf coast could also limit the strong-to-severe storm potential in the Valley. You’ll want to stay weather aware heading into Wednesday afternoon, and be sure to check back for the latest details.
