James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “a large mass of rain is moving through Alabama early this morning. Stronger thunderstorms are across South Alabama, where severe thunderstorm warnings have been needed for some of the counties due to the potential for large hail.”

“We expect a dry period later this morning, but more storms will form during the afternoon and evening hours, and those could be strong to severe,” said Spann.

Risk Areas and Levels

Currently, weather conditions have indicated that our area is under a “marginal risk” designated by the Storm Prediction Center. The “slight risk” area is for a portion of the far southern counties.

Timing Outlook

Between 2:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. is the current window for heavier storms.

Potential Threats

According to the National Weather Service in Birmingham, the main threats are damaging winds up to 60 mph and quarter size hail.

Outlook for the Rest of the Week

Spann said that “tomorrow should be the driest day of the week. With a mix of sun and clouds, temperatures rise into the 80s statewide with only a few isolated afternoon showers or storms. The chance of any one spot getting wet is 10-20 percent.”

We are also monitoring weather conditions for Wednesday and Thursday. The current outlook places most of our Townsquare Media coverage area in a “marginal risk.”

“While the upper dynamic support will be lifting far north of Alabama, a few storms Wednesday night could produce strong gusty winds. The tornado threat is very low,” said Spann.
