FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Gloomy today, stormy tomorrow

It's been a gloomy and warm Saturday, but Sunday will be much stormier. A cold front approaching the region will bring with it the likelihood of showers and storms tomorrow and the potential for a few strong-severe storms. Damaging wind gusts will be the biggest concern with any storms that can intensify in that environment, but an isolated, brief tornado can't be ruled out. Expect the potential for a few showers early on, with the better chances for storms not arriving until the afternoon-evening hours.

Temperatures near 70 degrees are in the forecast for Sunday afternoon, but much cooler temperatures will work their way in behind our cold front. We’ll be waking up tot he low 40s by Monday morning, 30s into New Years Eve! Highs will only reach the mid-upper 50s through New Years Day, keeping us seasonable for the start of 2020. Although we’ll see lots of sunshine at the start of the week thanks to high pressure overhead, eventually high pressure will slide east, our moisture will increase off the Gulf and another disturbance will bring showers to the region Thursday-Friday.

First Alert Forecast: Strong Storms Possible Sunday
