Severe Risk Decreasing...

After watching all the local weathercasts, I’m not convinced we will see widespread severe weather tonight.  In fact, we may not see any severe storms as SPC has allowed the Tornado Watch to expire across north LA/MS & only issued a Severe T-Storm Watch for us.  Looking at the lightning counter sees the number of strokes decreasing.  As the main energy starts pulling away, I would expect the line of storms to weaken further as it arrives over southeast LA/MS between 2-4 AM.   Still, make sure you have the FOX 8 weather app just in case a stray severe storm prompts NWS to issue a warning overnight.   Most of the showers should end during the 5-8 AM time frame on Saturday but it will take most of the day for the clouds to clear.  It will be 10-15 degrees cooler than today’s 79 but this is not a strong front coming.   In fact, we will struggle to get rid of the cloud cover on Sunday with another weak system coming for late Monday into Tuesday.  Fortunately, the core of the cold will remain well to our north, but much of the nation is really cold for the first week in April.   Teens & 20s make it feel more like February than April and that will only improve during the next 7-10 days.  If you plan on heading north, does forget to bring the heavy weather gear.   Stay tuned!
