Our next weathermaker: Thursday night thunder threat | WPMI

March 14, 2019
Our next weathermaker moves through the area today. While most of the energy, and thus violent weather will be to our north, thunderstorms are a safe bet late tonight into early Friday morning. The best bet to see severe weather in the form of damaging wind in the NBC 15 viewing area will be across Greene (MS), Washington, and Clarke counties, but the risk is very low. Farther south in Mobile and Baldwin County, occasional thunder and lightning will be accompanied by gusty wind to 30 mph and rainfall up to .75".
