Good afternoon everyone! It's been a warm, humid & windy day across the area. Expect mostly cloudy skies this evening with temps in the 70s. Lows overnight will be in the low 70s.

Things will go downhill tomorrow. There will be the possibility of severe weather during the afternoon and evening hours. Right now it appears all types of severe weather will be in play. Flooding could be a BIG threat for us since this set up can dump a lot of heavy rain. Be sure to stay tuned and weather aware!! The timeline looks to be from 11am to 9pm.

The reason for this is because a strong area of low pressure will move through the plans bringing a strong cold front though the Pine Belt. This will spark off a squall line storm on Sunday. This could be slow moving and dump a lot of rain. This type of set-up is known for having the capable of dumping A LOT of Heavy Rain. We'll also have to watch to see if any discrete storms fire up ahead of the line as well.

With the way that this is setting up, the timing will really make a difference on what we see. If it comes earlier, we could see a bigger flooding threat, if it comes later, a bigger severe threat. This may lead to one threat trumping the other.

The sun comes back for Monday and Tuesday before more storms come in on Wednesday and Thursday
