2:45PM Radar Update: Storms Moving into Northwest AL… Friday Update… #alwx @wvua23

WVUA 20d16

Good Friday afternoon! At 2:45pm, we’ve got a cluster of storms over central and north Mississippi, moving east. There is a random tornado warning to the northwest of Columbus, MS, moving east, however, the risk of getting a tornado in Alabama this afternoon is very, very low. Mainly, we’re looking at a good chance of storms for areas to the northwest of Tuscaloosa and Birmingham between 4pm and 8pm.

The cluster of storms is moving east, but the storms are not building southward at the moment, so it appears the main risk of rain and storms this afternoon and evening will be to the north of I-20 and to the west of I-65. Areas near Hamilton, Fayette, Jasper, Haleyville and Vernon have the best chance of getting these storms before they die out. These storms could dump some fairly heavy rain for a short amount of time in the areas listed above.

For cities of Tuscaloosa and Birmingham, there is a chance the storms could make it there around of just after 5pm, but it’s not guaranteed these storms make it that far south. The bottom line, if you live anywhere near or north of I-20 and west of I-65, keep the umbrella handy this afternoon and evening to be safe…
