HOLT, Fla., April 9, 2020—There’s a chance for severe weather this weekend according to the National Weather Service in Mobile.
The NWS is closely monitoring a strong low-pressure system expected to impact the forecast area Sunday into Sunday evening.
All modes of severe weather are possible with this system, including tornadoes—potentially long-track—large hail, damaging straight-line winds and flash flooding, according to the NWS.
A warm front moving northward from the Gulf of Mexico is expected Sunday morning ahead of the low-pressure system moving into this area Sunday afternoon.
This warm front will bring a warm, moisture-rich and unstable airmass into the area with severe storm development in the form of supercells ahead of a strong squall line along and in the wake of the warm frontal passage.
As the cold front moves through the area Monday morning, dry conditions will set in; however, there may be some isolated and scattered showers Tuesday into Wednesday. Thunderstorm development is not expected, according to the NWs.
