Pine Belt under ‘enhanced’ risk for severe weather Tuesday

PINE BELT (WDAM) - Overnight you can expect mostly cloudy skies with lows in the lower 70s.

Tuesday has been declared a First Alert Weather Day as the Storm Prediction Center has highlighted our area with an Enhanced Risk for severe weather.

We expect showers and thunderstorms to develop Tuesday morning, but the more significant storms will move across the area during the afternoon and evening hours.

The main threat at this time appears to wind, heavy rain and hail, along with a few isolated tornadoes possible. At this time, the main threat appears to be from midday through 8 p.m.

Make sure you have your WDAM First Alert weather app downloaded on your phone. Also, make sure your batteries are working in your weather radios. The threat appears to end after 8 p.m., but showers and a few thunderstorms could persist into Wednesday but are not expected to be severe.

After the system moves out of the area later in the day, expect mostly clear skies and slightly cooler temperatures with lows in the 50s on Thursday morning.

Sunny skies are expected Thursday through Saturday with highs in the upper 70s on Friday and in the lower 80s on Saturday. Lows will be in the mid 50s Friday and in the lower 60s Saturday night.

There is a 20% chance for a shower or thunderstorm in Sunday with highs in the mid 80s.
