James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said “a dynamic weather system will bring the dual threat of heavy rain and severe thunderstorms to Alabama tomorrow. SPC has now defined an "enhanced risk" (level 3/5) of severe thunderstorms for Southwest Alabama... areas west of a line from York to Monroeville to Brewton. A "slight risk" (level 2/5) extends as far north as Tuscaloosa, Montgomery, and Abbeville, and a "marginal risk" is in place to Birmingham.”

Core Severe Weather Threat

“The core severe weather threat will be over the southern third of the state... the air over North Alabama is expected to be cool and stable,” said Spann.  Also, “the higher tornado threat will be in the "enhanced risk" over Southwest Alabama. While a few storms could form during the afternoon (as early as noon), the core threat will come later, from about 5 p.m. until midnight. The threat will linger after midnight across Southeast Alabama.”
