Severe Weather Possible for Alabama in the Coming Days

More severe storms are in the forecast for parts of Alabama starting late Friday night and the risk for the northwest corner of the state has been elevated.

Tornadoes, damaging winds and heavy rainfall ,will all be possible with the strongest storms; severe weather will be possible not just over northwest Alabama but parts of north, central and west Alabama as well; south Alabama could get rain and storms on Saturday morning – but as of now – NO severe weather is expected in that part of the state.

The Storm Prediction Center has added a Level 3 out of 5 risk, or enhanced risk, for northwest Alabama including Florence and Russellville for Friday.

A Level 3 risk means that numerous severe storms will be possible – most of the rest of north Alabama will have a Level 2 risk (scattered severe storms are possible), and parts of central and west Alabama will have a Level 1 risk (isolated severe storms are possible).

Storms are expected from late on Friday night (9:00 onward) into Saturday morning. They could be the most intense in northwest Alabama, and could lose some steam as they track to the southeast during the overnight hours.

This isn’t the only upcoming risk for severe weather for Alabama – as forecasters are looking ahead to next week, when more storms will be possible.

The timing of next week’s storms is highly uncertain and could change, but as of next Wednesday morning, Storm Prediction Centers have a risk for severe weather in the  state in the Tuesday night/Wednesday morning time frame.

Keep an eye on the forecast, which will continue to evolve over the coming days.
