Strong to severe storms will be possible in parts of Alabama – on Sunday and Monday, according to forecasters.
Those strongest storms could have wind gusts capable of knocking down tree limbs and power lines, as well as a tornado. Rain chances for Alabama will go up throughout the day Sunday – but the most likely time for stronger storms appears to be – tonight into Monday morning.
NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center is maintaining a Level 2 out of 5 risk for severe weather for part of southwest Alabama Sunday – and part of east Alabama for Monday. The threat for a few strong, to severe storms, will last into Monday morning in parts of Alabama.
A Level 2 risk means that scattered severe storms will be possible. Parts of central Alabama have a Level 1 risk today (Sunday) – and part of northeast Alabama and parts of Central Alabama, will have a Level 1 risk on Monday. A Level 1 risk means that isolated severe storms will be possible. There could also be several inches of rainfall through Monday – for parts of the state. With several rounds of rain expected, forecasters will be watching in case flooding becomes a concern.
Rain and storms are expected to end from west to east during the day on Monday, and drier weather is expected from Tuesday through Thursday.
The next potential rainmaker for Alabama may be on track to arrive next weekend.
