***WEATHER AWARE TODAY***
We will have more active weather today across Central Alabama with strong to severe storms this afternoon and evening. These storms could produce damaging winds, hail and heavy rain between 10 PM and 5 PM.
Today, we will start out partly cloudy and humid with highs in the middle 80s. By midday, an upper-level wave/disturbance will move across Alabama along with a cold front. It will tap into the warm and humid unstable air over Central Alabama. This will cause scattered to numerous showers and storms to develop this afternoon and evening.
SPC has placed South Central Alabama in a Level 2/5 Slight Risk for winds of 60+ mph and quarter-size hail. The rest of Central Alabama is in a Level 1/5 Marginal Risk with a lower chance for 60 mph winds and hail. Both areas could also see heavy rain that could lead to possible flooding. Be Weather Aware!
Tonight, the storms will briefly come to an end with patchy fog, but the latest model trend is for them to return toward sunrise. It will be muggy with lows in the lower 70s.
The front will linger over Central Alabama on Wednesday. This will cause another round of strong to possibly severe storms in the afternoon/evening.
SPC has most of Central Alabama in a Level 1/5 Marginal Risk for gusty winds, hail and heavy rain. High temperatures will be in the upper 80s.
