8:40pm Radar Update #alwx @wvua23


At 8:40pm, dangerous supercell storms were quickly forming near a warm front across south Mississippi and far south Alabama. The cells are lifting northeast and will start to impact areas near the HWY 80 corridor around 10pm, then the I-20 corridor between 10pm and midnight. The severe risk will gradually decrease in the pre-dawn hours Sunday morning from southwest to northeast.

There is a PDS (Particularly Dangerous Situation) tornado watch for everyone generally south of I-20 or south of Tuscaloosa, Birmingham and Anniston. In that area across central and south Alabama, there could be a few strong tornadoes. While the I-20 zone and points north is not currently under a watch, does not mean there will be no severe weather in that area. The main risk for Tuscaloosa/Birmingham/Anniston and points north will be large hail and damaging winds. There could be a few isolated tornadoes as well, but the risk of tornadoes is lower. A moderate risk of severe weather has been issued for areas generally near and south of HWY 80, as that’s the greatest potential for widespread severe weather tonight.

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.
