Severe Winter Weather MAY be ON TAP Friday

More severe weather could be in store for the state on Friday, and ALL of the state could have to deal with storms this time around.

The Storm Prediction Center has added, a Level 3 out of 5 risk, for severe weather for part of the state come Friday, and a Level 3 or enhanced risk, means that numerous severe storms will be possible.  Strong tornadoes, damaging winds, and heavy rainfall, will once again be possible – forecasters also think that it could again be windy, even AWAY from storms, and that parts of the state will likely be placed under wind advisories.

Areas in South, Central and Northern Alabama will have a Level 2 risk on Friday, which means scattered severe storms will be possible; the rest of north Alabama will have a Level 1 risk, which means that isolated severe storms will be possible.  The National Weather Service thinks that those storms could be possible EARLY Friday morning and may be an issue into the afternoon.

Storms are expected to move out of the state on Friday night – AND much colder air will move into the state following the passage of a cold front.

That could set the stage for the potential for wintry precipitation Sunday night into Monday.  So far forecasters are thinking amounts will be light, but stay tuned in case that changes.
