Here’s the short and sweet on tomorrow’s severe weather risk…
A very thin, broken line of storms will race east across Alabama during the afternoon hours. Storms will begin aroun noon in far northwest Alabama (around the Florence area), then advance east to impact the I-59 coridoor (Livingston to Tuscaloosa to Birmingham to Gadsden) sometime between 3pm and 5pm. Storms will exit our east and east central Alabama countiues (areas around Anniston, Lineville, Auburn & Montgomery) by 7pm. The storms will only last maybe 15 to 30 minutes in one spot, then it’s over for you!
Storms along the line could produce strong gusty winds up to 60mph in spots. Storms could also produce isolated areas of small hail. The tornado risk is really, really low, but I can’t rule out a spin-up somewhere along the line. Again, it will be very fast moving, with the main risk from strong gusty winds.
