Chilton County could see severe weather on Tuesday.

“Right now, we are looking at a low threat of severe weather,” meteorologist Jason Davis with the National Weather Service said Monday afternoon. “Included in that threat could be damaging winds and isolated tornadoes. There is a greater threat of rainfall during the afternoon and evening hours of Tuesday.”

Davis said it will be important to remain weather aware on Tuesday with severe weather apps for smart phones and weather radios.

Davis said heavy rainfall is expected to last in Chilton County for much of the day Tuesday and even part of the day on Wednesday.

“It is looking like there will be quite a bit of rain on Tuesday, and those showers could linger into the morning hours on Wednesday, but things should dry out by Wednesday afternoon.”

Davis said the next several days should remain dry with the next chance of rain coming toward the weekend.

“Christmas Day is actually going to be sunny with a high of around 51 degrees,” Davis said.

Overnight temperatures on Dec. 25 should reach around 33 degrees.

Friday’s forecast includes plenty of sunshine with a high near 61 degrees and overnight lows around 44 degrees.

There is a 40-percent chance of showers on Saturday with a high near 59 degrees.

Saturday night temperatures are expected to reach 41 degrees with a chance of rain still forecast.

Sunday should see a 20-percent chance of showers with a high near 51 degrees.
