Marginal Risk Expanded Includes Portions of Northwest Central AL
Evening storms are always concerning to the weather team at Townsquare Media. The main reason is that after a long day typically you are focused on other things including sleep. Tonight into tomorrow morning there is the possibility of strong to severe storms, so please stay weather aware.
Today will be another warm one with a high well above average for this time of the year. Our areas could hit degrees between 84 and 88.
The National Weather Service in Birmingham has expanded the marginal risk area to include more counties in the Townsquare Media coverage areas. This includes all of Fayette and Lamar Counties, nearly all of Pickens County, and a portion of Tuscaloosa County.
The current timing provided by the National Weather Service in Birmingham is between Wednesday at 7 p.m. and Thursday at 1 a.m.
James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “the main threat will come from strong, gusty winds tonight across Northwest Alabama... the tornado threat is very low as the main dynamic support will be passing well to the north.”
