1:40PM Friday Radar Update: Storms Moving Northeast… #alwx @wvua23


At 1:40pm, we’re watching a line of heavy rain and storms move across west Alabama. Storms are currently lined up from Haleyville to Fayette to Aliceville. The line is progressing east and will impact the rest of west and central Alabama over the next few hours. Cells are forming ahead of the main line and we’ll keep an eye on any signs of rotation within the individual cells, as well as the line.

There are no current tornado warnings in our area, but there are several severe thunderstorm warnings. A tornado watch remains in place for areas along and north of I-20 until 8pm this evening. Inside the watch area, there could be an isolated spin-up tornado, but the tornado risk appears low.. The watch will be allowed to be trimmed back from west to east as the line pushes east. The leading edge of the storms should be out of east Alabama and into Georgia by 8pm. We’ll get light to moderate rain for a few hours after the strongest part of the line passes east of you.

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/
