FIRST ALERT DAY SUNDAY: Tracking strong to severe storms Sunday

NWS confirms eight tornado touch-downs in six counties

We all need to remain Weather Alert for the rest of the afternoon/early nighttime hours.

A strong storm moving slowly out of the Great Plains will drag a cold front into Tennessee Saturday causing several round of rain with some imbedded thunderstorms. Low temperatures will likely be in the upper 30s to low 40s.

It's another summer-like day for us, but with a few more clouds. This system is expected to set up as a "squall line", meaning the most significant threats will be damaging straight-line winds in excess of 70 miles per hour and prolonged heavy rains leading to flooding. As a result, Sunday has been declared a First Alert Day.

Robertson added that the storm system is expected to drop up to four inches of rain on the area, with heavy rainfall continuing even after the severe weather pushes through. An isolated tornado can not be ruled out.

Right now, it looks like the best time to see storms will be from 1 p.m.to around 11 p.m. from west to east.

The cold front will usher in dry air and windy conditions on Saturday which puts a risk of fire weather conditions. A concert by the rock bands Styx and REO Speedwagon that was set for Saturday night at The Wharf Amphitheater in Orange Beach is being delayed until Monday.

Review your severe weather plan and know what you should do if a severe storm or tornado is near you.

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