Storms Ending This PM… Nice Mid-Week… Tuesday Forecast Update – 3:30pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Tuesday afternoon! At 3:30pm, a line of heavy rain and storms continue to push southeast across the area. Storms will end from northwest to southeast this afternoon and evening, with all areas becoming clear and dry overnight. Temperatures will be a bit cooler tonight, with a low in the middle 40s.

A surface high moves over the area on Wednesday and Thursday, allowing bright sunshine and dry conditions to return to the area. Highs will warm nicely into the lower 70s on Wednesday and middle 70s on Thursday. Lows will dip into the low 40s Wednesday night.

A cold front will fast approach Alabama on Friday, with a decent risk of showers Friday morning. Drier air will take over Friday afternoon and Friday night. Highs will approach the low 70 on Friday, but cooler air will filter in from the north on Saturday and Sunday. A wave of low pressure will track over central Alabama Saturday night, which will spread a soaking rain over the area. Most models agree that rain will move out early Sunday morning as the surface low moves to our east and a cold front moves southward across Alabama. Highs will struggle to reach the low 60s on Sunday, with lower 40s likely Sunday night.

2pm Tuesday Radar Update: Intense Storms Continue Pushing East… #alwx @wvua23

gahhaaa.png

At 2pm, we’re watching a line of strong storms progress east across our area. The line is stretched from just east of Cullman to Jasper to Lake Tuscaloosa to Aliceville to Jackson, MS. There are 2 small bowing segments along the line. One is over Lake Tuscaloosa and Samantha and the other is over east Mississippi near Scooba. Both of these bowing segments have a severe t-storm warning, and these two segments are capable of producing a small area of damaging winds up to 60mph. The line and 2 bowing segments are moving due east.

Widespread severe weather is not expected, but we’ll continue the small risk of isolated wind damage along the line of storms, mainly where there are a couple of small bowing segments in the line. Expect rain amounts between 1 and 2 inches today…

Storms will impact I-59 from Livingston to Tuscaloosa to Birmingham to Gadsden between now and 4pm. Areas from near Demopolis to Montgomery will deal with the storms between 3pm and 5pm.

Rain will be over across all of west and central Alabama by 7pm this evening.

Storms Likely this Afternoon, Some Strong… Midday Tuesday Update #alwx @wvua23

The Storm Prediction Center has removed the slight severe weather risk for our local area, which based off trends and new model data, I think that was a good move. Yes, we will get strong storms in our area this afternoon, but the chance of damaging winds, hail and tornadoes just does not seem like a threat with this setup.

At 12:15pm, storms are impacting the Hamilton area now. The I-59 corridor (Tuscaloosa to Birmingham to Gadsden) will be impacted around 2pm to 4pm. The HWY 80 corridor (Demopolis to Selma to Montgomery) will be impacted between 3pm and 6pm. Expect heavy rain and intense lightning along the leading edge of the line for 30 minutes or so, then a period of light to moderate rain for an additional hour or two.

By 6pm, strong storms will be well south of central Alabama. Rain amounts of 1 to 2 inches appear likely today.
