9:40pm Wednesday Radar Update #alwx @wvua23
December 28, 2016 Leave a comment
At 9:40pm Wednesday, we are watching showers and storms develop across northwest Alabama. The storms over Alabama are not severe and remain rather weak. We are watching with interest new storms forming in northwest Mississippi and southeast Arkansas. Those are the storms associated with the main line and cold front. Currently, there are no watches or warnings associated with the storms to our west…
Given the uplift, wind shear and increasing surface based instability, storms that develop stand the chance of becoming strong. There could be an isolated wind damage issue or a spin-up tornado tonight, as the main line works through the state. The risk is on the low end of the scale, but I still want you to be weather alert tonight incase a severe storm moves into your area. Have a source to wake you up if a warning is issued for your area.
The risk of strong and isolated severe storms will reach northwest Alabama sometime closer to midnight, then impact the I-59 area (near Tuscaloosa, Birmingham and Gadsden) between midnight and 2am. Areas to the southeast of Tuscaloosa, Birmingham and Gadsden will deal with the risk of strong to isolated severe storms between 1am and 4am.
