Severe weather back in forecast

HOLT, Fla., March 28, 2022—Another round of severe weather is expected Wednesday into Wednesday night with the western Florida panhandle in a level 2 out of 5 severe weather risk area.

Severe storms are likely, especially over portions of southeast Mississippi and southwest Alabama, Wednesday afternoon and into Wednesday night, according to the National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center.

All modes of severe weather will be possible including damaging winds, large hail and strong tornadoes.

According to the forecaster’s discussion, there is a special need to monitor for the potential of high-end damaging wind gusts and as well as a strong tornado threat, mainly across southeast Mississippi and southwest Alabama.

The severe threat across the rest of south central Alabama and the western Florida panhandle will remain present through the overnight and early Wednesday morning hours.

Numerous storms may produce locally heavy rainfall, although the heaviest totals will likely be across Mississippi and Alabama–interior areas north of Interstate 10–where 2-3 inches of rain with locally higher amounts in excess of 4 inches will be possible.
