7am Wednesday Radar Update – #alwx @wvua23
November 30, 2016 Leave a comment
At 7am , a batch of very heavy rain and storms was located in a line from Oneonta to Tuscaloosa to Livingston. This line is slowly sinking southeast and will likely dump a good inch or two of rain as it tracks along and then southeast of I-59. Rain amounts over northwest Alabama are impressive, with radar estimates over 4 to 5 inches in many spots. Flooding is occurring in some areas across the northwest side of the state.
We’re maintaining a low end risk of isolated tornadoes through mid morning for areas along and ahead of the leading edge of the storms. While the tornado risk is much lower than it was yesterday evening and lastnight over northwest AL, I can’t rule out a quick spin-up tornado across central and east Alabama through mid morning. Areas to the northwest of the leading edge of the storms is in good shape, as the severe risk has ended for those areas to the west of Livingston, Tuscaloosa, Jasper and Cullman.
