Possible Isolated Tornadoes in Portions of Alabama Next Week
Weather-wise our area is in secondary severe weather season which includes severe thunderstorms, hail, damaging winds, lighting, and tornadoes.
This period for fall severe weather season is between November and December. The Alabama Wx Weather Blog said that in recent years, November in Alabama has proven to be more eventful than the spring primary season.
The best time to prepare for severe weather is when conditions are nice and quiet.
Severe Weather Potential Early Next Week
The Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa weather center is monitoring a system that could impact our area Monday night through Tuesday morning.
As this weather system moves northeast across our area the National Weather Service in Birmingham believes that it will be supportive for some strong to severe thunderstorms.
Also, this system could usher in some beneficial rain amounts for our area.
James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “models continue to suggest there could be sufficient instability for strong to severe thunderstorms across parts of AL/MS, especially in the Monday night/early Tuesday time frame.”
We are several days away from this possible severe weather threat. As conditions change this could impact the weather outlook and severe weather potential. The Townsquare Media team will continue to monitor and publish necessary updates to keep you informed.
Currently, the Storm Prediction Center has issued a risk level for portions of South and West Alabama. The probability of severe weather is between 15% to 29%.
