10:35pm Saturday Radar Update – #alwx @wvua23


At 10:30pm, we’ve got storms moving into western and central Alabama, producing very heavy rain and intense lightning. Storms are moving from southwest to northeast. There is a tornado watch for areas generally south of I-20, where there is still a potential for a few tornadoes. Areas around Tuscaloosa, Birmingham and Anniston and points north are in a risk of severe weather as well, but the primary concern at the moment is large hail and damaging winds. There is also a risk of damaging winds and large hail across all of west and central Alabama through the pre-dawn hours Sunday morning.

Between now and 3am, the severe weather risk will continue across west and central Alabama. The risk will end from southwest to northeast gradually overnight tonight. By sunrise Sunday morning, I expect a break in the action across most of central Alabama. Additional storms are likely on Sunday, but the risk of severe weather will have diminished by then. We’ll keep an eye on radar trends tomorrow as well…

Keep in mind, we go live non-stop on TV on WVUA during tornado warnings. I will be live at the top and bottom of every hour for cut-ins on WVUA. If we get a tornado warning, I will be on air and online non-stop. 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. We will also facebook live severe weather coverage. Just look for WVUA23 on facebook!
