One thing is for sure, we will remember the start of 2023 being filled with severe weather. Currently, we are monitoring a system that could impact Alabama later this week.

According to the National Weather Service in Birmingham, “a frontal boundary will bring a line of thunderstorms to the state, with the potential for individual thunderstorms embedded in this line to become severe as the line moves from northwest to southeast Thursday.”

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said “displacement south from the main dynamics in tandem with marginal thermodynamics should limit the overall severe potential for Alabama with this system, but should instability values rise higher than forecast now, some risk of severe storms might have to be introduced.”

Early Thoughts on Timing

“The main window for the heavier storms will come from about midnight Wednesday night through noon Thursday. Rain amounts of around one inch are expected,” said Spann.
