Severe Weather Update (for Early Monday Morning) 4/24/17, 9:30am. @wvua23 #wxal. 

Good Sunday morning. We’ve continued monitoring our forecast for tonight into tomorrow. The original plan for storms along the coast to inhibit strength is now changing. Our higher resolution models are showing nothing to limit the incoming storm system (this image is from the NAM at 8am Monday). 

Timing: expect arrival for west Alabama between 6 and 9am. Central Alabama will be slightly later, between 9am and 12pm. Then if the timings hold up, east Alabama will see the line arriving between 12 and 3 pm. 

Impacting Locations: I still feel like this will be a southerly impacting system. The greatest chance will be for those south of I-20.  Areas north of that still could see the chance, but it will not be as likely. 

Threats: threats include strong gusty winds that could knock things over (we could see winds up to 70mph when the line first arrives). Some hail could be possible. Tornadoes could become tucked within the front of the line from the shear of high winds. They will quickly spin up and break down while being pushed along, rather than being long lasting/tracking.
