First Alert Forecast: warm, windy Monday; scattered storms possible
Warm, Windy With Occasional Showers, Storms Monday (Source: WLBT)

It’s a windy & warm day ahead of our cold front! Amidst scattered showers today, anticipate highs in the mid-upper 70s and wind gusts up to 40mph. As the cold front works in our direction, anticipate a line of showers and storms to move across the region this afternoon and evening (exiting by around 10/11pm).

A strong-severe, gusty storm can’t be ruled out, especially north of I-20!

We're WINDY & warm with scattered 🌧 now... But, storms are possible later today as our cold front works east! ⏰...

We’ll dry out into our Tuesday, but showers (and a few rumbles of thunder) will work their way northward into the overnight period. We could still have a few showers across the region for the start of our Wednesday before that disturbance moves east.

Dry conditions and seasonable temperatures will return for the end of the work week, before another system brings a few showers Saturday into Sunday.
