This week we do have the potential for severe storms that could work into portions of West and Central Alabama. We are closely monitoring today, Wednesday and Friday.

 

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that the “chance of any one spot getting wet today is 50-60 percent, and the high will be in the upper 80s for most communities. Just what you expect this time of the year.”

Spann also commented that we should “look for a mix of sun and clouds today with more random, scattered storms firing up this afternoon and early tonight. The overall pattern won't change much through Friday. Muggy days with a mix of sun and scattered, mostly afternoon and evening thunderstorms.”
