It is an active late afternoon across the southern half of Central Alabama as we have numerous storms ongoing, some of which are producing gusty winds and small hail. We currently have a grand total of 7 active significant weather advisories and 3 severe thunderstorm warnings south of the I-20 corridor all of the way down to the I-10 corridor in Alabama. All of this activity is pushing to the northeast.
The 3:00 pm update from the Storm Prediction Center has a Level 1 Marginal Risk for severe storms for nearly all of North Central Alabama through the rest of the day. Instability is quite strong over the area and a warm front moving northward is providing the needed lift for these storms to form.
Strong thunderstorms are possible across Central Alabama through 8:00 pm. Storms will be most numerous south and east. The strongest storms will produce isolated damaging wind gusts to 60 mph and nickel size hail.
