The Storm Prediction Center maintains a low-end chance of some ‘severe’ storms in Alabama and Tennessee through the morning: all ahead of a very strong, sharp cold front. There are several reports of power outages with a line of heavy rain early this morning. Severe weather is more likely east of us through Thursday.
Those on Sand and Lookout Mountain will have wind gusts to 40 mph through 9am. This could cause some power outages there this morning.
Following the storms, it just turns cold! Temperatures plunge from highest-of-the-day readings around 70ºF before sunrise to the 50s by late morning and 40s in the afternoon.
A Freeze Watch is in effect for most of North Alabama and Middle Tennessee starting late Thursday night as many communities drop to or below 32ºF for the first time this season by sunrise Friday.
