First Alert: Severe weather possible Wednesday

PINE BELT (WDAM) - Wednesday, the cooler air that moved in Tuesday will move right back out during the day on Wednesday. Wind from the south will usher in warmer, humid air off the Gulf. That will set the stage for showers and storms to develop in the evening and into the overnight hours.

By 6 p.m. the chance for rain will increase with the threat for a few severe storms too. The main concerns will be heavy rain, frequent lightning, gusty wind and small hail. While we can’t rule out the chance for a brief tornado, tornadoes are not one of the main concerns. The storms will last through about 3 a.m. on Thursday morning. The chance for rain will be around 70% with afternoon highs, before the rain rolls in, in the 70s.

Thursday will start cloudy and drizzle as post-frontal rain may continue through noon. Temperatures will start int he mid 50s and only manage about 60 in the afternoon.

Friday will start with a few clouds, but should end up being a pretty nice day. Same with Saturday. Lows will be in the 30s and 40s and afternoon highs will top out around 60 degrees.

By Sunday, the clouds creep back in with a chance for rain in the morning and again in the evening. Highs will be in the mid 60s. The chance for rain is around 30%.

Then Monday another system with more rain arrives. That will linger into Tuesday. Highs will be in the 70-degree range. With a 40% chance for rain each day.
