Late night Update: Severe Risk Shifting Southeast – Flood Watch Continues

(11:45 PM CDT 3/8/24) 

Updating our situation for the rest of the night: A warm front is located near a Greenville/Auburn line.  So, the severe weather threat for the rest of the night has shifted mainly to Southeast Alabama generally south of a Greenville/Pike Road Auburn line.  From I-85 northwest the severe threat has ended.  Meanwhile the Flash Flood Watch continues.  Many areas have already had 2-4” already and the potential exists for up to 2-4 additional inches overnight, especially along and south of I-85.  Some areas have already experienced flooding.  But, again the best news for many in central Alabama is a reduced severe weather threat.  The threat of damaging wind gusts and isolated tornadoes will continue for southeast Alabama through 7AM.  

TODAY:  After 7AM,  Most of the rain will have shifted to Southeast Alabama.  For much of the area: Cloudy today.  Northwest wind 5 to 15 mph.  High 73.  Mostly cloudy, colder tonight.  Low 45.

NEXT FEW DAYS:    It will turn quite a bit cooler Sunday as sunshine returns.  Coldest nights will be Sunday and Monday, as we fall into the 30’s .  Attention Alabama growers:   Patchy frost can’t be ruled out.  Sunny, mid 60’s Monday.  We’ll be back to the 70’s on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Sorry for the brief Blog—but its been about a 20 hour day.  Have a good weekend.
