Possible severe storms Wednesday night

A line of possible severe storms is expected to hit the area late night Wednesday, Feb. 5, after midnight into Thursday morning, according to a press release from Coffee County EMA Deputy Director Grant Lyons.

Gusty winds of 35-40 mph are expected to precede the storms, according to the release.

The main threat for the area will be these damaging wind gusts, but the EMA warns that a tornado is possible, according to the release.

The area is projected to receive 3-4 inches of rain, with locally higher amounts possible, according to the release.

A squall line is expected to develop Thursday, Feb. 6, but it is still early to discuss whether the line will impact the area, according to the EMA.

The CCEMA is reminding residents to make sure to have multiple ways to receive weather alerts and a way to wake up since this is expected to be an overnight event.
