9:30pm Wednesday Radar Update/Thoughts… #alwx @wvua23


At 9:30pm Wednesday evening, we’re watching a line of severe storms move across central Mississippi. The line of storms has a history of producing damaging strait line winds, but there have not been any tornado reports over the past few hours. The Storm Prediction Center has placed most of central Mississippi under a severe thunderstorm watch, as the main risk will be damaging strait line winds over Mississippi through midnight.

The green over west and central Alabama is ground clutter, not rain. The line of storms in central Mississippi will reach the west Alabama state line around midnight, then progress east through the pre-sunrise hours, impacting all of our area with atleast some rain and thunder.

Between midnight and 5am, areas along and west of I-65 (west of Cullman to Birmigham to Clanton) has a good chance of storms, with a few of those producing damaging winds. An isolated tornado or two will be possible, primarily along HWY 82 (Reform to Tuscaloosa) and points south and areas along and to the west of HWY 5 (west of Centreville, Marion and Selma.) The risk of an isolated tornado is in the red shaded area on the map below. In the yellow shaded area, there is a risk of isolated damaging winds.


The line of storms will push to the east of I-65 around 5am and into Georgia by 8 or 9am.
