Several rounds of strong to severe storm clusters expected for the week

According to the Covington County Emergency Agency (CCEMA), we will be heading into another week of active weather with several hazards possible throughout the week.

Several rounds of strong to severe storm clusters will move in from the north-northwest this afternoon and Wednesday afternoon. The best chance for damaging winds will likely be on Wednesday. An upgrade to slight risk for damaging winds may be possible for Wednesday if confidence continues to increase.

Mainly southeastern Mississippi into coastal southwestern Alabama on Tuesday and the entire area on Wednesday will be affected. However,  the best chances will be along and north of highway 84 on Wednesday.

The CCEMA has confidence in severe weather today is low and storms will likely behave like a typical summer afternoon but with more storms. Wednesdays confidence is higher as a more organized cluster of storms could develop during the afternoon.

Dangerous heat indices will develop Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon,  ranging from 105 to 110 degrees.

This will mainly over southeastern Mississippi, Coastal Alabama and the northwestern Florida Panhandle. However, it will still be downright hot across most of the area both days

Several rounds of heavy rainfall could be possible later this week as rainfall totals accumulate on already saturated soils.   Locally heavy rainfall with localized flash flooding concerns, Wednesday through Saturday.

Confidence in exact location and timing of any heavy rainfall is low; however, confidence in an overall wet pattern and multiple rounds of storms each day is high.
