2 min read

This morning, a large mass of rain and thunderstorms covers the southern two-thirds of Alabama.

Lightning is limited to the southern part of the state, really from parts of Marengo and Choctaw, across Butler, Crenshaw, Pike, Coffee, and Henry Counties.

As expected, the strongest storms are in the Mobile and Baldwin County areas, where severe thunderstorm warnings are in effect. The angriest and most intense storms are from Atmore to Bay Minette to southern parts of downtown Mobile. They have a high probability of producing wind damage as well as hail, and an isolated tornado can’t be ruled out. A downstream warning was just issued for parts of Baldwin and Escambia Counties in Alabama and NW Florida. This warning is notable because it has a DESTRUCTIVE tag on it, calling for tornado-like damaging winds.

The strongest storms extend from Mount Vernon to Semmes in Mobile County.

Strong storms extend across Central Mobile County into the northern part of Mobile Bay, south of the Causeway.

A large batch of strong storms covers much of the Mississippi coastal area.

The light to moderate rain in Central Alabama extends as far north as Hale, Shelby, Talladega, Clay, and Randolph counties. The heaviest rain in this part of the state is from Sumter County across Marengo, Dallas, Autauga, Lowndes, Montgomery, Elmore Tallapoosa, and Lee Counties.

The rain area will gradually shrink southeastward and be mostly out of Central Alabama by 3 p.m. To the south, the heaviest rain will push into the Panhandle by 1-2 p.m.

Another batch will move into southwestern Alabama after midnight. A second, lighter batch, will move into Northwest Alabama. Storms could be severe south of a line from Tuscaloosa to Clanton to Auburn with damaging winds and hail. The two batches will conjoin during the early morning hours as the rain and storms lift northeastward. They should be out of Alabama early afternoon.

Lastly, a few strong storms will form tomorrow afternoon across almost any part of Alabama. Those storms have the potential to be severe with damaging winds and hail, but the good news is that the coverage will be limited.
