Cold Front Brings Severe Storms To Mid

The NWS Storm Prediction Center defines a "moderate risk" this way: Severe thunderstorms are expected to affect between 5 and 10 percent of the area.

Damaging wind, hail, heavy rain, and isolated tornadoes are the main threats with this system.

The cold front is expected to pass through San Antonio around midnight.

Morning: Starting mostly cloudy and warm, the leading edge of the storms is where tornado threats will be most likely, moves in after sunrise.


Current data shows 2-3 inches of rain over most areas with higher amounts possible. As we move into the overnight hours, the storms should become more linear in nature. If you don't feel comfortable riding out a storm where you live, make a plan regarding when you should leave your home and where you would go.

Isolated strong to severe storms will develop along a "dry line", a boundary that separates dry air to the west and humid air to the east.

Severe thunderstorms will affect Central Alabama later today.

The National Weather Service has issued life-threatening weather conditions in parts of Nebraska as the storm has strengthened into Friday evening.


"One in the morning then another from 4 to 7 p.m." he said.

If this solution pans out, the main threat would be strong, potentially damaging winds, in the neighborhood of 50-60mph. The watch stretched through parts of Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas. However, a few showers are developing west of the Mississippi Delta.

FLOOD THREAT: Medium threat for flooding. The remainder of Central Alabama will receive 1 to 3 inches and some flooding is possible across East Alabama. Mainly quarter size or smaller.

Stay weather aware and be ready to move to your severe weather safe spot if risky weather threatens.
