ANOTHER Round of Severe Weather Could Impact Portions of Alabama
We are monitoring a system that is currently on a timeline to impact portions of Alabama late Tuesday night into the early morning hours of Wednesday. As always, these timeframes are a concern because of the natural pattern of people being asleep during those hours.
The weather system is projected to bring snow to the southern plains to the Midwest and usher severe weather to the southern region.
Storm Prediction Center Outlook
There is a “level 2 out of 5” which is a “Slight Risk” for portions of South Alabama. In addition, there is a “level 1 out of 5” which is a “Marginal Risk” that reaches portions of our coverage area.
Timing & Areas
James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist mentioned that ‘There will be basically no surface-based instability available over the northern half of the state with this system (temperatures in the 40s and 50s), but unstable air could creep into the southern counties Tuesday night, setting the stage for severe thunderstorm potential generally from about midnight Tuesday night through 8:00 a.m. Wednesday.
“For areas south of U.S. 80, storms during this time frame could produce strong, potentially damaging winds, large hail, and a few tornadoes,” said Spann.
Please don’t forget that the entire Yellowhammer State could experience wind gusts up to 40 miles per hour that are not thunderstorm related.
