3:16 a.m.:

Most of the activity is rain over the eastern half of our area, with a few NON-severe storms from Taylor into Lafayette & Suwannee Counties. The cold front is with the line of showers moving through Dothan. A few more storms will likely develop ahead of it over the next few hours, and while the severe threat is lessening, there is still chance of strong to severe storms until the front passes you. THEN you’ll get strong, gusty (and cold) winds of 20-30 mph with 40+ mph gusts through the rest of the morning.
