6pm Thursday Radar Update… Few Scattered Showers & Storms Continue #alwx @wvua23


Good Thursday evening! At 6pm, widespread rain and severe storms have ended across west and central Alabama. There are a few ongoing showers and isolated storms tracking northeast, but there are no severe weather issues at the moment.

A tornado watch continues for most of west and central Alabama until 10pm tonight. Based off trends and our high resolution model data, there is a chance we don’t have any additional severe weather issues this evening or tonight. The National Weather Service is considering dropping the tornado watch early, but the high levels of wind shear and uplift over our area will keep us watching radar. The number of showers and storms should gradually diminish overnight.

Friday, another round of showers and storms will be possible during the day, with a risk of isolated tornadoes, especially during the afternoon. Be weather alert on Friday incase a tornado warning is issued.

If a tornado warning is issued for our area, you can watch us live non-stop on WVUA/WUOA or online here: http://wvua23.com/severe-weather-happening-now-live-stream/
