The Storm Prediction Center has a Level 1 Marginal Risk up for much of Central Alabama and a good chunk of the western half of North Alabama for your Tuesday as strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible, similar to what we saw on Monday. The Marginal Risk includes locations along and south of a line from Florence (Lauderdale Co.) to Hayden (Blount Co.) to Auburn (Lee Co.).
According to the latest Hazardous Weather Outlook from NWS Birmingham, isolated strong to severe thunderstorms are possible this afternoon across all of Central Alabama. Brief damaging wind gusts and hail up to quarter size could occur.
NWS Birmingham is also warning about the heat as heat indices may approach 105 degrees for areas along and west of Interstate 65 this afternoon. Take extra precautions while outside.
The bottom line for today… Storms will fire up by the afternoon and some of which may become strong to severe. While there is a greater risk for those in the Marginal Risk area, a couple isolated strong to severe storms may be possible outside of that. I’ll have updates throughout the day if needed.
