Alert: Possible Damaging Winds, Flooding Threat for Alabamians
Friday, August 4, we are monitoring the possibility of damaging winds, flooding, and excessive heat for counties in the Townsquare Media coverage area.
The National Weather Service in Birmingham said that “Showers and thunderstorms will move southeast across the area today, resulting in continued flood risk across portions of the northeastern counties along with concerns for damaging winds from the stronger storms.”
The threats include damaging winds that could reach 60 miles per hour, additional rainfall of 1-3 inches that may result in localized flooding, and dangerous heat index values.
The current timing of this active weather system will be Friday from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.
The Storm Prediction Center has several Alabama counties under a "marginal risk" which is a level 1 out of 5 that includes a southern ¾ of the Yellowhammer State. Currently, the outlook includes Townsquare Media coverage areas like Bibb, Fayette, Greene, Hale, Lamar, Perry, Pickens, Sumter, Tuscaloosa, and Walker counties.
James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “on the positive side, highs will only be in the 80s today across much of North and East Alabama thanks to rain and storms; temperatures reach the 90s in areas south and west of Birmingham where showers and storms will be fewer in number.”
