At 10:30pm Saturday, a broken line of severe storms is approaching the west Alabama state line. We’ll likely begin to see severe issues on the state line between 11pm and midnight. The broken line of cells will then slowly progress east across Alabama overnight tonight, with a risk of damaging winds, hail and tornadoes.

Here’s the time-line:

10am Saturday Morning Severe Weather Update – #alwx @wvua23

Untitled.jpg

Good Saturday morning! We’ve had a wave of rain and thunder move northward across Alabama this morning associated with a warm front. The boundary is lifting northward and the rain is lifting northward in response to that. South of the warm front, it’s muggy but mostly rain free. There is still a few showers and maybe an isolated storm possible through the afternoon, but the risk of rain is much lower.

What to expect tonight:

A batch of supercell storms involved in a broken line will pass across Mississippi this evening and into west Alabama tonight. The storms will have the potential to produce all modes of severe weather including large hail, tornadoes, damaging winds and intense lightning. Some data has hinted that the storms may weaken some as they move into slightly more stable air over east Alabama, but we’re going to play it safe and keep all of central and west Alabama highlighted in a risk of severe storms.

Keep in mind, this is a pretty standard severe weather risk for Alabama in April. While this doesn’t appear to be a major tornado outbreak type of event or a historic event, I do think we’ll have issues with a few tornadoes, damaging winds, and hail. Please remember that it only takes one tornado at your house to be a danger to your life and family. It doesn’t take an April 27th type of day to cause problems for you. Please take warnings seriously!

What time: The severe risk will begin in west Alabama near the state line close to midnight tonight (Saturday night) and continue for west Alabama through about 6am. By that point, the severe weather risk should be all in east Alabama to the east of I-65. By 10am, the risk of severe weather will be coming to an end in east Alabama and pushing into Georgia.

What storms could do:

If storms remain cellular, which I think is a good possibility, the risk of tornadoes will remain rather elevated during the overnight hours and into early Sunday morning. While the risk of wind damage would be less widespread compared to a line, storms could produce isolated areas of damaging winds. Hail would also be a concern if storms indeed remain cellular.
