Heavy rain and possible severe weather expected Sunday

High pressure will continue to dominate our weather as we go through Saturday.

A powerful cold front is heading for the Gulf Coast and will be bringing the potential for severe weather and flash flooding with it before bringing much colder air to the area. Tuesday will be sunny with low humidity and afternoon temperatures in the low to mid 70s.

The clouds will clear ot on Monday and temperatures will be more like late Feb.as opposed to mid April. A brief tornado is possible, but the main threat from any severe thunderstorms will be damaging winds up to 60-70 miles per hour. A First Alert Action Day remains in place. Our severe storms chances have dropped as snow is ramping up in NW KS and SW NE.

The winds will start ramping up Sunday morning, and it will be warm and very humid. The best chance of this happening would be from western North Carolina toward Southside Virginia, but it is far from certain these "discrete" storms will develop at all.

After reaching daytime highs in the upper 60s to near 70, we tumble into the upper 30s to around 40 overnight.

You can track heavy storms with WHNT.com's Interactive Radar or swipe over to the radar feature on Live Alert 19.

For more details on the forecast, tune into News 19 at 5pm, 6pm, and 10pm and this weekend. Moisture will be increasing and the result will be mostly cloudy skies by Sunday. Our core 12-hour window for severe storms statewide is now from 2 p.m. until 2 a.m.

It will warm up through Wednesday with highs in the low 80s by then.
