Marginal Risk for Severe Thunderstorms in Alabama’s Western Half
Wednesday night into Thursday morning a cold front will pass through our area bringing a risk of severe storms along and ahead of the front for portions of the western portion of Alabama.
James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that a “bulk of the rain and storms will arrive late tomorrow night, especially after midnight. SPC maintains a low end "marginal risk" (level 1/5) of severe thunderstorms for the western half of the state in their Day 2 outlook, which is valid through 6:00 a.m. Thursday. Then, after 6:00 a.m. Thursday much of Southeast Alabama is in a "marginal risk.”
“A line of strong thunderstorms will be near the Mississippi border tomorrow night around midnight; at that point, they will be capable of producing strong gusty winds, and an isolated tornado can't be totally ruled out (but isn't likely). Then, the storms should weaken after midnight as they move into Alabama with no surface-based instability available,” said Spann.
