Tornadoes, Damaging Winds, Hail Possible This Week in Alabama
Today our area will enjoy temperatures nearing the 70s; it will feel pretty close to a springtime day. When the weather is nice, it is a good time to review your severe weather safety plans for your home and workplaces.
On Thursday, the unsettled weather becomes a better-organized system and accompanying area-wide risk of severe storms Thursday afternoon and evening,” said the National Weather Service in Birmingham.
James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “the primary threat of strong to severe storms will come during the afternoon and evening hours and over the western 2/3 of the state. Based on forecast instability and wind profiles, thunderstorms will be capable of producing hail, strong winds, and a few isolated tornadoes.”
The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has nearly the entire state of Alabama at a “slight risk” which is a level 2 out of 5. As of right now, it looks most of our Townsquare Media coverage area is in the Noon to 6 p.m. timing window with a few counties in the next timing slot until 9 p.m.
