The WDHN Storm Team is tracking what could potentially be a long night across the Wiregrass. The Storm Prediction Center has part of our Wiregrass counties included in a “moderate” risk of severe weather, including Dothan, Ozark, Enterprise, and Abbeville. The threat also extends into part of southwest Georgia including Early and Seminole Counties. That’s a level four on a scale of one to five. The rest of the region is included in an “enhanced” risk. Tornadoes, damaging straight line winds, and large hail are all possible as the storms roll across the area. Some of the tornadoes could be strong. Any of the storms could contain winds in excess of 65 to 70 mph, causing widespread damage.
The storms look to arrive late tonight into early Monday morning.
Alabama Governor Kay Ivey has issued a state of emergency for this evening’s severe weather potential through the state of Alabama.
Now is the time to prepare. We encourage you to have a way of receiving watches and warnings as they roll into our region tonight. WDHN will be on the air, as needed, providing severe weather information. Know what you and your family would do in the event a warning is issued for your area.
