Radar Update…3a.m. #alwx @WVUA23

WVUA 2016.png

Light showers continue for parts of central Alabama; however, that’s changing as a strong band of storms continue to traverse through Alabama, traveling west to east. There is currently only a severe thunderstorm watch for north Alabama and parts of central Alabama. This downgrade from a tornado watch is thanks to cold air undercutting the storms cutting much of the uplift off. These storms will keep tracking through the state throughout Sunday and continue to weaken. The greatest risk for severe weather in west and northwest Alabama has come mostly to an end now. Current timing brings the storms into Tuscaloosa roughly around 3-5 a.m., 4-6 a.m. for Birmingham areas, and 7 a.m. or later for areas east of Jefferson County.  When the system moves into east Alabama, the weakening storms will still have the power to produce some stronger winds. Quickly following the storms is a massive pocket of cold air that is causing some winter weather advisories for north Alabama because the air will likely cool the rain enough to cause some freezing rain for the far northern portions of the state. Since the risk for severe weather is mostly over for us here in central Alabama, we are clocking out here at WVUA. Catch you tonight on the news at 10! Stay Warm!
