Windy, Warm & Humid Overnight Ahead Of Thursday Showers & Storms

Wind Advisory from 8 PM - 6 AM in the Mountains.

Discussion:
A strong cold front is sweeping across the Deep South this evening bringing severe weather across LA and soon into MS and AL. There have been confirmed tornadoes with this line already with one ripping through an Elementary school in Arkansas. The front will bring a line of showers and isolated storms to the WCCB Charlotte area on Thursday. The timing will be mid to late morning into early afternoon. Storm Prediction Center has our area under a Marginal Risk (level 1 of 5) for severe storms Thursday. Damaging wind and an isolated tornado possible – the threat is low, but not zero. Dry conditions return in wake of the cold front to close out the week.

Notes:
– A wildfire is rapidly spreading in Tennessee.

– The Moderate Risk (level 4 of 5) is in place across portions of the Deep South and Dixie Ally through this evening. This includes Northwest Florida portions of Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas and Louisiana. Damaging wind and tornadoes are likely.
