Severe Risk UpgradedMarch 15th, 2014 at 2:59 pm by Matt Barrentine under FOX10 Stormtracker Weather
Slight Risk For Severe Weather:
The Storm Prediction Center has elevated our severe risk for Sunday. We are now in the ‘slight risk’ sector across our part of the Gulf Coast. The reason for the upgrade is that there is some low-level energy developing, mainly offshore. So the possibility is, a severe storm our two developing over the Gulf and then holding together long enough to bring damaging winds to coastal areas. The chance one of those storms spawns a significant tornado is extremely low, but not zero either.
These possible strong storms will be coming due to a cold front that will pass through the area Sunday. Outside of anything severe expect heavy rain as the system moves through.
St Patrick’s Day:
Some leftover showers are possible Monday morning, otherwise it will be a cloudy and grey day with cooler air moving in. Highs will struggle reach 6o and overnight temps will drop to around 40 in many areas.
After Monday, things clear up and sunshine returns. In fact, the rest of the work week looks really nice with cool mornings and warm afternoons!
