Very Heavy Rain & Severe Storms… 5am Radar Update Saturday #alwx @wvua23


At 5am, very heavy rain is taking over west and central Alabama. There is a tornado watch until 11am for all areas just to the south of I-20. The watch includes everyone south of Tuscaloosa, Birmingham and Anniston, but the watch does not include those cities. The primary risk area will be near the HWY 80 corridor and points south for damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes. Some flash flooding is also possible over the next several hours.

This round of storms will end on the west Alabama state line by 9am, and areas to the east of I-65 before noon.

Keep in mind, we go live non-stop on TV on WVUA during tornado warnings. You can go to, 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!
