Severe weather is expected Monday evening and again early Tuesday morning into the afternoon hours for much of Alabama.
At this point, we believe a few discrete storms could be severe Monday evening ahead of an approaching squall line over Mississippi.
This would affect the far western sections of the state. If these cells develop, they could become severe and produce a tornado.
The main threat for widespread severe weather is expected to be with the squall line that will be near the Alabama/Mississippi state line around Midnight Monday night and be near a Huntsville to Birmingham to Selma line by 8am Tuesday morning.
The line will continue to move eastward across eastern portions of Alabama on Tuesday and should exit into Georgia by Tuesday evening.
The main threat with the line will be damaging winds of 60 to 70mph. Isolated tornadoes and localized flooding will also be possible.
We will continue to monitor future movements and developments with this system. Times of arrival and severe weather impacts will be updated as the system moves closer to Alabama.
Now is the time to prepare and get your Severe Weather Plan ready, and know what to do if a warning is issued for your area.
