Expect Strong to Severe Storms + Damaging Wind Threat in Alabama
Like a Broken Record, Alabamians prepare for another day of severe weather. Also, there is a possibility of active weather on Thursday.
We are expecting possible threats of damaging winds and quarter-size hail within these storms.
Currently, the Storm Prediction Center has three risk areas for the outlook for today.
Northwest corner of the state - "enhanced risk" - level 3/5
The southern section of Central Alabama - "slight risk" - level 2/5
Central and South Alabama - "marginal risk" - level 1/5
There has been a change from previous forecasts to the timing for the severe weather threat. As conditions have presented the change, now the entire outlook area is under the "3 p.m. until 10 p.m. time frame," said the National Weather Service in Birmingham.
The Townsquare Media coverage area is split between 3 p.m. – 8 p.m. and 4 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Don’t forget the brutal heat that our area faces as well.
