At 7:15am, an area of strong to severe storms lined up from northern Sumter county into the Tuscaloosa area into the Birmingham area and points northeast continue to track from southwest to northeast. These storms are capable of producing hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes over the next few hours. Keep in mind, there is a tornado watch until noon for all of central Alabama to the south of Vernon, Fayette, Jasper and Cullman. A new watch will likely replace that one later today.
Another round of severe storms will develop this afternoon over west Alabama and progress eastward through the early to mid afternoon hours. The storms that develop this afternoon will be capable of producing large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes. The highest tornado risk is for areas east of I-65, but understand, storms could still produce a tornado as far west as the Alabama/Mississippi boarder. Storms this afternoon will be the scattered supercell type of storms, so not everyone will be impacted by severe issues.
Make sure you have a source of weather information through the afternoon.
