We are thinking about those impacted by the severe storms yesterday. It is heartbreaking to learn about the loss of life and devastation that took place last night into early Saturday morning.

Currently, we are monitoring conditions that are concerning for our coverage area. According to the National Weather Service in Birmingham, “the front that brought active weather to the region Friday night is expected to stall across our region. An unstable air mass feeding into the front from the south is expected to aid in the development of multiple rounds of storms, some severe, on Sunday.”

Risk Levels and Areas

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist has given us more insight on the Storm Prediction Center’s risk levels and areas. The “SPC has defined a "slight risk" (level 2/5) of severe thunderstorms south of a line from Moundville to Calera to Roanoke. A "marginal risk" extends northward to Kennedy, Warrior, and Glencoe.

“Due to the stalled nature of the front, we look to be dealing with a lengthy window for severe storm potential, of which could begin quite early Sunday morning with additional rounds as late as Sunday night. Localized flooding could occur where storms move over the same areas,” said the National Weather Service in Birmingham.

Possible Threats

Spann said that “multiple rounds of storms are likely tomorrow over the southern 2/3 of the state, and the heavier storms could produce strong winds and hail. While conditions don't especially favor tornado formation, one or two can't be totally ruled out in the "slight risk" area.”
