There is the potential for severe weather on Wednesday, September 6 during the afternoon and evening hours. Here is what you need to know.

Risk Level

The Storm Prediction Center has issued a “Marginal Risk” for strong to severe thunderstorms for portions of Alabama which include some Townsquare Media coverage areas for Wednesday.

Current Timing

The National Weather Service in Birmingham said that “a line of storms is expected to form toward our northwest Wednesday afternoon along an approaching front. This activity will then affect parts of central Alabama during the late afternoon and evening hours, some of which could be severe.”

Risk Areas

Ideally, this threat will be generally along and north of the 59/20 corridor. The counties in our coverage area include Fayette, Lamar, Pickens, Tuscaloosa, and Walker. Also, a portion of Greene, Hale, and Sumter counties.


Possible Threats

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “the main threat from heavier thunderstorms will come from strong straight-line winds. Understand it won't rain everywhere; the chance of any given point seeing rain is 30/40 percent.”

Also, the National Weather Service in Birmingham mentioned the threat of quarter-size hail.

We will monitor weather conditions and the potential for active weather in our coverage area and provide updates.
