8:30pm Monday Radar Update… Good Rains Continue.. #alwx @wvua23


At 8:30pm, the risk of severe weather has faded across Alabama, as the airmass remains stable. Most of the issues today from strong wind actually arrived this afternoon and evening, well ahead of the storms. Pressure gradient winds caused tree and powerline damage and resulted in power outages. Now, we’re dealing with the positive side of the system… the much needed rain! Rain amounts vary a good bit across our area, but reports of 1 to 2 inches are common in areas north of Demopolis, Marion and Clanton. Areas south of HWY 80 haven’t got much rain yet, but rain will impact your area later tonight, as this slow moving area of rain and embedded thunder sinks south.

We are carefully watching the round 2 that arrives tomorrow evening and tomorrow night. The risk of damaging winds, hail and a few tornadoes appear possible. We’ll have more updates on that soon…

Keep in mind, we go live non-stop on TV on WVUA during tornado warnings. You can go to wvua23.com, scroll to the weather tab and click on Live severe weather stream to watch from your computer or smart phone.
