Showers with a few thunderstorms will spill into the Pine Belt in the next few hours. The cold front is moving very slowly (if at all), but should resume some SE progression this afternoon.
Later this afternoon and evening the potential for severe weather exists, mainly in the form of strong wind gusts. That being said, we can't rule out the chance for an isolated tornado. Coastal counties will see a better probability of strong storms due to their increased instability, but the entire Pine Belt lies in the Storm Prediction Center's "slight risk zone".
About an inch of rainfall is expected across the area, but a slow-moving front always makes for a tricky forecast. Flooding is looking less likely today but also can't be completely ruled out.
I'll be watching this closely through the day and will bring updates as they come! Remain weather aware today, folks!
Looking into Monday, showers will likely linger into the morning as a much cooler air mass migrates into the region. Winds out of the northwest gusting up to 225 mphare expected as the front moves off to our east. Temperatures will drop as the day goes on and lows will plummet into the 20s by Monday night.
Tuesday will be even chillier with afternoon highs struggling to make it out of the mid 40s. We'll gradually warm up as the week goes on, but Tuesday and Wednesday mornings will be very cold. Stay warm!
