Cooler Air Takes Over… Storms Next Week… Wednesday Eve Forecast Update – 5:50pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - ddddsPM.png

Severe weather issues have ended across our portion of west and central Alabama, with the thin, broken line of storms racing southeast. Overall, the severe weather issues were very isolated across central and west Alabama, with a few areas of minor wind damage and a few areas of quarter size hail. There were no tornadoes reported today across our portion of west and central Alabama. Our focus will turn to cooler air arriving this evening and tonight. I expect lows to drop into the low 40s overnight, with a light north breeze. Skies will become clear tonight.

Thursday will feature plenty of sunshine, with a high in the low 60s. A light north breeze will make conditions feel a little cool on Thursday and Friday. Highs on Friday will struggle to reach the low 60s. Temperatures Thursday night will dip into the middle 30s, with a light freeze possible for some areas Friday night, especially along and north of I-20.

The weekend will be beautiful, with a mostly sunny sky on Saturday and a partly cloudy sky on Sunday. Temperatures will warm into the upper 60s on Sunday, with Sunday morning temperatures in the lower 40s. Clouds increase on Monday and Tuesday, with a good chance of rain and storms on Tuesday.

5:25PM Wednesday Radar Update: Storms Moving Out… #alwx @wvua23

gaahh.png

Good Wednesday afternoon! At 5:25pm, the severe risk for the I-59 & I-20 corridor has ended, as the broken line of showers and storms rapidly track east and southeast. At the moment, storms were lined up from Butler to Linden to Marion to Clanton to Rockford and Anniston. There could be an isolated area of quarter size hail and a damaging wind gust along the line over the next hour or so, but the risk for this event is rapidly coming to an end.

I expect storms to move out of our southern counties by 7pm, with slightly cooler and more stable air moving in behind the storms this evening.

Looking back at what this event produced, we had several reports of hail and isolated areas of wind damage. There were no tornadoes reported with this event. Overall, this event was pretty much dead on track with only isolated severe weather issues.
