Strong Storms Late Tonight… Wednesday Update – 7:30am #alwx @wvua23


Good Wednesday morning! A deepening surface low to our west will kick off a round of severe storms this afternoon across portions of Arkansas, west Mississippi and west Tennessee. As the storms move east during the overnight hours, instability will be decreasing and the best uplift will be passing to our north; however, there will be just enough of a combination of wind shear, instability and uplift to maintain the line of storms to atleast west Alabama.

Storms will arrive on the west Alabama state line around 1am, then move east to a point near I-65 by 5am. Some storms generally over west Alabama to the west of I-65 have a chance of producing gusty winds and small hail. I can’t rule out a spin-up tornado near the Mississippi/Alabama state line, but the risk is low. There may be a damaging wind gust or two over west Alabama, but the risk is more unlikely for areas near and east of I-65. The rain will be over for west and central Alabama by 7am and the rain will be over for east Alabama by 8am. This will be a fast moving event and will not last very long.
