Good Morning! Early this morning, we are tracking some strong storms moving through the state. This is out ahead of an approaching Cold front. The window for potential severe weather will continue through the morning and into the early afternoon. Damaging wind gusts are the main threat. But, some brief tornadoes can’t be ruled out. Much cooler air will follow for Wednesday and Thanksgiving. Showers will return to the forecast Thursday night and Friday. So far, Iron Bowl Saturday looks nice. Here’s my brief forecast discussion.
