Most of us in Central Alabama will enjoy a great and warm weekend, but a few showers and storms may sneak into the western parts on Sunday afternoon. Strong to severe storms look to be possible on Monday. Dry weather will return late on Wednesday.
A very dynamic system will be moving across the southeast on Thursday and Friday that will be bringing the potential for strong to severe storms to Central Alabama from Thursday afternoon through the early morning hours on Friday.
A surface low will be moving from Oklahoma through the Mid-Mississippi Valley and into the Ohio Valley on Thursday that will be swinging a strong cold front through the southeast that will bring a threat of severe storms to North/Central Alabama.
Got to stay on your toes today. The SPC updates severe weather risks by expanding the Slight Risk.
A couple of tornadoes, damaging winds up to 60 mph, hail up to quarter size, and a few flash flooding issues will be possible this afternoon and evening. Have your plan of safety and your safe place ready just in case your location goes under a warning.
We are still looking a decent severe weather threat across all of North/Central Alabama, where all modes of severe weather will be possible, especially the threat of damaging winds up to 70 mph and tornadoes.
We now have a risk of stronger to severe storms from today through Saturday night, before much calmer and colder weather moves in late on Sunday.
