Saturday Morning Thoughts; Posted at 5:22 a.m.

Good morning to you! I just wanted to throw around some thoughts about the severe weather and wintry weather. The severe weather threat is over for Tuscaloosa now, but there is still a severe thunderstorm warning for many counties to our east and south. The severe activity will be out of our area by 7 am or so. There is still a tornado watch until 9 a.m. for counties south of Tuscaloosa. With colder and more stable air moving in, we’ll see the rain quickly shut off across all of our coverage area in the next couple of hours. It has been a long day and night for the entire staff at WVUA, but we are about done with the severe weather.

Now, our next weather issue will be a little more fun. A winter storm threat is going to move in tonight, with a chance for snow all across central Alabama. Accumulations are likely for most of the area, with the heavier totals east of Tuscaloosa. Expect a dusting – 2 inches area wide, with a heavier amount somewhere in there. It is hard to tell where that will occur, but our best bet is a strip less than 50 miles wide across our western and central counties will give us some higher totals. We will be here with you for updates during the winter weather threat and will be on the air if necessary tonight through tomorrow morning. With it being a weekend, there won’t be many people on the roadways, so that will be a good thing. I don’t think we have any major travel issues, but it could get a little icy on the elevated roadways and overpasses. Just use common sense and take caution if traveling on the roads tonight. Be sure to stay with us. We’ll have a live newscast tonight at 10 p.m., but you can also get our latest thoughts right here on our weather blog page. Have a great Saturday!
