This notable risk for severe weather is why we have a First Alert Weather Day in place for today.

PLEASE BE ALERT: THE FORECAST FOR SUNDAY NIGHT IS STORMY: A solid or broken line of showers and storms is likely to sweep eastward through the evening and overnight hours.

The National Weather Service in Birmingham has its own severe weather risk forecast for Saturday, and it differs some from the outlook from the Storm Prediction Center.

Parts of the Mid-South have been upgraded to an ENHANCED risk for severe storms on tonight.

A Flash Flood Watch has been posted for most of the WAFB viewing area from 1 AM Saturday through 1 AM Sunday. Between a tenth and quarter-inch of rain is possible. If you take a peek at radar, things may not look all that bad early on Saturday.

The Guadalajara cartel blamed the undercover agent for the takedown of a 2,500-acre marijuana plantation owned by Caro-Quintero. Several years ago, in an interview with the Mexican magazine Proceso, Caro Quintero denied murdering Camarena .

We will have potential for severe weather, however, starting up in the late afternoon and moving into Sunday morning.

Areas from Harlowton to Roundup extending all the way to the North Dakota line are now under Winter Storm Warnings.

Once the storms move east of the Mississippi River later this evening, they will likely weaken and the severe weather threat will be less. Forecasters say the metro area could get 2 to 4 inches of rain, with higher amounts possible in isolated areas.

Winds will remain breezy throughout the day on Friday, pushing temperatures into the mid to upper 70s once again.

The cool front should bring temperatures closer to normal early next week. Tomorrow will see a south west wind that will lift the humidity even more and I suspect many will find tomorrow uncomfortably humid. Temperatures are down in the mid to upper 60's and lower 70's for most with cloudier skies to the southeast, clearer skies to the west. Models indicate that thunderstorms will begin to increase by mid afternoon and could quickly become severe.
