12:20pm… Dry Line Approaching Fast! Thoughts on That… #alwx @wvua23


At 12:20pm, our weather is turning quiet after the morning round of widespread severe storms moves out of central Alabama. There is one lone severe storm over Shelby County, but that is the only severe storm in our area at the moment.

The dry line is racing east across Mississippi, and we do note surface winds are becoming southwest already across west Alabama, which is greatly reducing low level wind shear. As the atmosphere dries out from west to east by mid to late afternoon, the risk of any additional severe storms will come to an end. We have a small window for a few isolated severe storms to fire up on the dry line this afternoon, but the risk of widespread severe weather is looking more unlikely. We still need to be alert through 5pm west of I-65 and through 7pm east of I-65, until we are totally out of the woods. If additional storms can develop this afternoon, they could produce damaging winds, hail and a tornado. More updates shortly…
