The threat for strong to severe storms will exist Sunday afternoon through the late evening hours across the News 3 viewing area.
The timing window will open up staring across our east Alabama counties around 1 p.m. central and last through the evening hours across Columbus till it exits our southeastern Georgia counties around 8 p.m. eastern.
All modes of severe weather will be possible with the greatest threat being damaging straight line winds with bowing segments along the squall line. Within the enhanced risk (south of Columbus) there will be a higher risk for a few tornadoes to potentially develop ahead of the main squall line.
After the frontal passage Sunday night, expect cooler conditions to start the week with several sub-freezing mornings left in this winter season.
