Strong Storms Possible Sunday
COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - We will see a line of showers and storms move through the Chattahoochee Valley today with the potential for some pockets of strong winds, frequent lightning, and small hail. The severe risk overall is low, and while we cannot complete rule out a brief tornado, that risk is extremely low. That being said, we could see some severe thunderstorm warnings come out with some strong winds being the main concern, so have a way to get watches and warnings! Timing-wise we are looking at early afternoon hours for our most northwestern counties, mid-afternoon for our middle counties, and late afternoon/early evening for our most southeastern counties.
A cold front moves through overnight and brings cooler, drier air and lots of sunshine into the forecast for Monday. By Tuesday, storms return with the best shot at a shower or storm coming on Wednesday as another frontal system sweeps through the Chattahoochee Valley. After we get that system out of our hair, we will get much more settled in the forecast with lots of sunshine around! Our northern counties could see some frost on Friday morning as we cool things off a bit for the end of the week. Highs are in the 60s for Thursday and Friday before we warm things up again heading into the weekend with highs back in the 70s.
