Increasing Thunderstorm Threat

Another warm summer day on tap with highs generally in the low to mid 90s.

With plenty of moisture and instability to work with, scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible across north and central Alabama by this afternoon.

The best thunderstorm coverage is expected generally along and north of I-20 late this afternoon as old outflow boundaries from the MCS development to our north push into north Alabama and trigger additional storms.

We will also be watching for the development of storms north of Alabama that could move southeast into Alabama during the evening hours.

Some of the storms will have the potential to becoming severe starting this afternoon, and continuing into the night time hours.
The threat for damaging straight-line winds, hail, heavy rain and frequent lightning will exist with this system.

It looks like the main threat of widespread thunderstorms will be during the evening hours and into the overnight and early morning hours of Tuesday.

The activity will continue to move southward through the state Tuesday with all of Alabama expected to receive good chances of showers and storms.
