Late Eve Radar Update – 10:25pm Tuesday #alwx

Warnings_1044

Good Tuesday eve! After a wild weather day across parts of north and central Alabama, with storms producing large hail, conditions are a little more quiet this evening. That being said, there is a noisy batch of storms over northern Alabama, primarily near and north of HWY 278. The storms on the map above are moving south and southeast, so don’t be shocked if you get rain and thunder sometime tonight, especially north of I-20. Widespread severe weather is not expected tonight, but a strong or severe storm can’t be ruled out.

We’ll hang onto a rain chance for Wednesday, but I don’t expect an all day rain event for our area. Storms will be scattered, in-fact, most of your day will be dry, and some areas won’t get a drop of rain on Wednesday. That’s just the nature of scattered storms… Have the umbrella handy tomorrow, incase a storm moves over your area. Keep in mind, some storms may produce gusty winds and hail. The number of severe storms on Wednesday should be a bit lower than today…

Looking Back at Hail Pics… Mild Days Continue… Some Scattered Storms… Tuesday Eve Forecast Discussion – 10pm #alwx

Good Tuesday evening! Above is a look at pictures from today’s hail storms that passed across parts of the state. Due to the scattered nature of the storms today, it’s amazing to see the difference between one location that stayed dry all day and another spot that had large hail just a few mils away…

Warnings_1040

With a stationary boundary draped across central Alabama, the risk of scattered storms will continue for much of the week. While it will not rain all day or night, keep in mind a storm could pass over your area at any point. I don’t expect the storms to be as numerous as they were today, but an isolated severe storm or two will continue possible on Wednesday and Thursday. If any storms make it to severe levels, the main risk will be in the form of hail. Highs will continue to top out near 80 on Wednesday and Thursday. Lower 80s are likely on Friday.

Most of Friday will be dry, but storms will arrive Friday evening and Friday night, as a cold front moves into the area. Some storms could become strong to severe Friday night, but widespread severe weather is unlikely at this time. We’ll get a bit cooler on Saturday, with highs in the upper 60s. Skies will become sunny on Saturday and for Easter Sunday. After a cool start to Sunday morning, highs will rebound into the lower 70s…

Scattered Severe Storms Gradually End This Eve.. Tuesday Update – 7:20pm #alwx

10981725_844203865632829_100766427799446434_n

At 7:20pm, a few storms are still strong to severe across central and east Alabama, with hail being the main issue. Storms are moving east or east southeast at 25mph. At 6:15pm, a severe storm dumped large hail right over Northport and Tuscaloosa, with many reports of quarter to golf ball size from that storm. The hail even covered the ground in some areas… I’ve got tons of pics and will be posting on here later this eve.

At this 7 O’clock hour, there are still a few severe storms on radar, that are producing quarter size hail. As temperatures cool this evening, the storms you see on radar will gradually calm down. A few showers and storms are still possible overnight tonight, but severe weather is unlikely after 10pm…

Storms will fire up again tomorrow, and some storms may produce large hail once again. The storms that develop will be scattered, so some areas deal with large hail and other areas don’t get a drop of rain. That’s just the scattered nature of storms…

Isolated Large Hail… Otherwise, Scattered Storms Continue… Tuesday Update – 4:45pm #alwx

Warnings_1043

Good afternoon! At 4:45pm, storms are producing large hail in isolated spots across northern Alabama. We’ve had reports of hail the size of golf balls in some areas, where the stronger storms are tracking. There is a severe thunderstorm watch for most of the area, except for southwest Alabama, or areas southwest of Tuscaloosa. The main threat with the storms this afternoon and evening will be large hail, so it will be a good idea to park your car under a garage or carport to reduce the risk of hail damage. Not everyone will see hail, but some spots will experience hail. Since storms are scattered, some of you will have a severe storm with large hail and intense lightning, and some of you will not get rain at all… That’s just the scattered nature of these storms. The radar image above was captured at 4:45pm, and shows scattered severe storms mainly north of Tuscaloosa. Understand, the severe storms are moving southeast at 30mph, so areas like Tuscaloosa and Birmingham may experience a severe storm before this all ends later tonight.

Keep in mind, this is not a deal where it will rain all day. Since storms are scattered, some areas will deal with a severe storm, while other areas stay mild and dry. The risk of getting atleast some rain at your house between now and 10pm is 70%. After 10pm, storms will gradually calm down. There is a boundary draped across central Alabama, and that will allow for a focal point for scattered storms at times this afternoon, tonight and again on Wednesday.

Severe Weather Risk Through This Eve… Tuesday Update – 2:55pm #alwx

Warnings_1043

Good Tuesday afternoon! The map above is a look at radar as of 2:50pm, with the convective slight risk in yellow. Areas across central, west, east and north Alabama will continue to notice an increase in strong to severe storms through this afternoon and evening. Storms are moving from northwest to southeast. I do not expect tornadoes today, as wind shear is very limited. However, storms may produce damaging winds and hail as they move over the area. There is a severe thunderstorm watch for much of north, west, central and east Alabama until 7pm this evening.

Keep in mind, this is not a deal where it will rain all day. Since storms are scattered, some areas will deal with a severe storm, while other areas stay mild and dry. The risk of getting atleast some rain at your house between now and 10pm is 70%. After 10pm, storms will gradually calm down.
