Severe weather and flash flooding possible Saturday

How to stay safe during severe weather

National Weather Service forecasters say central and western portions of Alabama are at the highest risk for a weekend of severe weather, and residents of the entire state is advised to watch for tornadoes.

As of Saturday afternoon, much of our area was already under a "Slight Risk" for severe weather. Low temperatures will likely be in the upper 30s to low 40s. We'll be on hand through the day for cut-ins if warranted, with updates throughout the day. Our main threats are going to be damaging straight-line winds and large hail, but an isolated tornado can not be ruled out. A First Alert Action Day remains in place.

We're watching a major storm system that's sparking a multi-state blizzard warning, stretching from Kansas to Minnesota. As the front runs into that warm air, any storms that develop could produce heavy rain and gusty winds. Forecast models bring 3 to 10 inches of snow and sleet to the Coulee Region through Sunday night, with the highest totals to the NE. An isolated tornado can not be ruled out. After midnight, expect rain chances to begin dwindling in San Antonio, but increasing along the Coastal Plain. It will be chilly on Monday morning, with more sun with highs in the mid 50s again. Stay tuned for live updates throughout the afternoon, evening and overnight hours. Sunday will be breezy with a gradually clearing sky.

The central USA experienced a severe storms outbreak on Friday.

Then, the rest of next week will warm right back up to the 70s with plentiful sunshine, so we just have to get through tomorrow, and then we'll be home-free the rest of next week. Highs temperatures only recover into the mid 60s.
