Watching for Strong Thunderstorms


A storm system over Texas will move our way and produce showers and thunderstorms beginning Saturday night. These storms are not expected to produce any severe weather over the state during the night time.

During the day on Sunday, we expect the risk of severe weather to begin as the line of thunderstorms develop west of the state and moves east.

Meanwhile a warm front will move north and put the central and southern sections of the state into the warm sector of the storm system.

Thunderstorms will be likely over all of Alabama on Sunday…with the chances of severe weather developing in the warm sector over central and southern sections.

The best chances of severe weather including isolated tornadoes will be over the southern third of Alabama. However, anyone living below the I-20 corridor will need to be especially alert through the day.

Even though the chance of severe weather is low over the northern third of the state, a few storms may produce strong wind gusts between 40 and 50 mph.

Heavy rainfall is also possible area wide, so localized flooding is possible as well.

The showers and storms will taper off by Sunday evening with only scattered showers after midnight.
