First Alert Forecast: Alert Day Easter Sunday

First Alert Forecast: Alert Day Easter Sunday
Mild, Breezy Thursday (Source: WLBT)

A cold front is pushing south through the state today and will allow for cooler temperatures as we wrap up the work week and kick off our Easter Weekend. We will run a good chance for showers, maybe a few storms, along and south of I-20 late tonight and into the overnight period as that cold front drops farther south and an area of low pressure rides along the Gulf Coastline.

We will be mainly dry Friday and Saturday with cooler than average temperatures on the way! Storms start to increase late Saturday into Easter Sunday.

Easter Sunday is an ALERT DAY as severe weather is a concern throughout the day. Damaging wind gusts, hail, tornadoes and heavy rain are all possible and we'll have to make sure we're staying weather aware! Stay tuned for frequent timing/strength updates as we get closer and closer.

⚠️ ALERT DAY: Easter Sunday Make sure you, your family, & your friends all know to stay weather aware this Easter...

Fortunately, high pressure quickly builds back into the region behind Sunday’s cold front and we’ll dry out and cool off for next week.
