8:10pm Wed Radar Update: Storms Weakening, Moving East #alwx @wvua23
February 8, 2017 Leave a comment
At 8:10pm, all warnings have been canceled, as the line of storms is greatly weakening across central Alabama. Storms are lined up roughly near the I-59 corridor, moving east at 40mph. While a random severe t-storm warning is possible over the next hour or two, widespread severe weather will not happen tonight; in-fact, if you live northwest of I-59 (Northwest of Tuscaloosa, Birmingham and Gadsden), your severe weather risk is over tonight. Areas generally near and east of Birmingham could still see some gusty winds or small hail before 10pm.
The line will reach areas like Demopolis, Clanton and Talladega round 9pm, then exit our central and east Alabama counties by 11pm. The line is broken in spots, so it’s possible you miss out on the rain with this fast hitting event.
