WEATHER AWARE FRIDAY NIGHT: The cold front will move across Alabama Friday night into Saturday morning. A line of strong to possibly severe storms will move across the state between 10 PM and 6 AM Saturday. The severe threat is low for Alabama, but it will be something to watch over the next few days.
SPC has placed the western 2/3rds of Alabama in a Level 2/5 Slight Risk, and the eastern 1/3rd a Level 1/5 Marginal Risk for severe weather. The main threats will be gusty winds and a few tornadoes along and west of I-65 at night. We’ve issued a WEATHER AWARE because of these threats. Since this is an overnight threat make sure you have multiple ways to get weather alerts that will wake you up.

Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s. The old cold front will move back north as a warm front Sunday afternoon. This will make it partly cloudy with a chance for a few showers and storms.
