7pm Radar Update: Strong to Severe Storms Moving Across the Area… #alwx @wvua23

At 7pm, a line of intense storms with heavy rain and strong winds is located in a line from Cullman to Tuscaloosa to Livingston. The line itself could dump an inch or more of rain in a short period of time. Winds could top 50mph in spots as the line passes over your area. The low end tornado risk however has pretty much faded across our area. I can’t rule out a quick spin-up south of HWY 80 between now and 9pm, but the risk is unlikely. The storms will end slowly from west to east overnight. Areas across east Alabama such as Anniston, Talladega and Rockford will deal with the storms after 9pm, but the line will slowly weaken as it moves east tonight.
Very gusty pressure gradient winds ahead of the main line continues to be an issue this evening, with numerous power outages not related to a thunderstorm. Winds have gusted over 40mph at times today over all of west and central Alabama.
