Alabamians Stay Aware: Severe Weather Threat Later This Week
The severe weather season has surely picked up the pace. Alabamians are faced with more severe weather later this week. We are closely monitoring a system that could impact our coverage area with active weather on Thursday afternoon.
We are several days ahead of this system, so weather information could change and the timing should be clearer in the next few days. Now is a great time to review your severe weather safety plan and make sure you have multiple ways to receive weather information.
James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “an approaching cold front will bring a band of showers and thunderstorms late Wednesday night into Thursday. A linear storm mode will probably be dominant, so damaging winds should be the main severe threat. Low-level flow is forecast to gradually veer to a more west-southwesterly component through the day, which should limit the tornado threat to occasionally embedded circulations within the line.”
