Radar check at 11:52 am shows that we have some shower activity over the northwestern parts of North/Central Alabama with storms starting to move into the western portions of Lamar and Pickens counties. Nothing strong at the moment, but a few strong and potentially a severe storm or two may be possible during the afternoon and into the evening hours.
All of the eastern three-quarters of North Alabama remain in a Marginal Risk through the rest of the day. Nearly all of Colbert, Franklin, and Lauderdale counties are not included in the risk.
Nearly all of Central Alabama also remains in a Marginal Risk for severe storms through the rest of the day. Much of Lamar and Marion counties in the northwestern parts of Central Alabama are not included in the risk area, along with all of Barbour and Russell counties and portions of Pike, Bullock, Lee, and Chambers counties.
The threat of damaging winds up to 60 MPH will be possible from roughly now through 9:00 pm tonight from northwest to southeast. Tornadoes and hail are not expected.
After the storms and cold front moves through by later this evening and tonight, a few scattered showers may redevelop behind the front and move northeastward from the southwestern parts of the area. Some of those showers may linger for a little while into the late morning hours on Tuesday.
