Latest From the National Weather Service for Cherokee County (Alabama)

The National Weather Service has continued to monitor the possibility of strong severe storms in both north, and north-central Alabama – early in the week.

NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center has outlined an area that includes all of north Alabama and the northern part of central Alabama – all that could potentially see strong storms on Tuesday.  The timing of storms is still uncertain – however, Tuesday afternoon and evening look like the prime times to watch according to forecasters.  The strongest storms could have damaging wind gusts as high as 60 mph and heavy rain.

And severe storms aren’t a sure thing.  The National Weather Service has noted there are several potential limiting factors that could keep storms in check on Tuesday, when a cold front is expected to move into the state from the west.  Rain will be possible statewide.

The rainfall outlook from NOAA’s Weather Prediction Center shows that Alabama could get anywhere from 0.01 inches to 1 inch on Tuesday, and parts of central Alabama are favored to see the most.  Cooler weather is expected to follow Tuesday’s storm system; lows in the upper 30’s will be possible for northern parts of the state, on Wednesday and Thursday nights.
