It seems like we have had a severe weather threat every week in the New Year. Wait, we have.


Now, we are closely monitoring a system that “will advance across the region by the middle of next week. This system may provide a threat of strong to severe storms across southern portions of Central Alabama,” said the National Weather Service in Birmingham.

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “a dynamic weather system will bring wind and rain to the state Tuesday night through Wednesday morning.”

“Thankfully there will be very little surface-based instability available, which will be a limiting factor with this system. The main risk of severe thunderstorms will come from about 11 p.m. Tuesday through 7:00 a.m.,” said Spann.

As of right now, the areas that could be impacted by this incoming system are the southern portions of Central Alabama, mainly along and south of the U.S. Highway 80 corridor.

Other Factors

However, I want to point out that there is the possibility of gradient winds not related to thunderstorms for the entire Yellowhammer State. These winds could reach up to 40 miles per hour.
