3 min read

SEVERE CLEAR: With a sunny sky, temperatures are mostly in the 70s across Alabama this afternoon. Tonight will be fair with a low in the 50s.

The day tomorrow will be dry, but clouds will increase with a gusty south wind developing by afternoon ahead of the next storm system. The high tomorrow will be in the 75-80 degree range.

TOMORROW NIGHT: A line of showers and storms will pass through the state, and the storms could be severe. SPC has expanded the “enhanced risk” (level 3/5) to include areas west and north of a line from Madison to Jasper to Reform. A “slight risk” (level 2/5) is defined as far south as Gadsden, Hoover, and Moundville. A “marginal risk” down to places like Talladega, Clanton, and Thomasville.

A line of thunderstorms will enter Northwest Alabama tomorrow night in the 9:00-Midnight time frame, then progressing southeastward through the pre-dawn hours Saturday. The primary threat will come from strong, potentially damaging winds, but an isolated tornado can’t be ruled out, especially in the “enhanced risk” area. In fact, SPC is now suggesting there could be a strong tornado (EF-2 or higher) across Northwest Alabama.

As always, it is very important to be able to hear warnings in the middle of the night as they are issued; the baseline is a NOAA Weather Radio. Be sure “Do Not Disturb” and “Sleep Mode” as disabled on your phone so you won’t miss any notifications.

Gradient winds will average 15-25 mph of the storms, with gusts to 30/35 mph possible in spots across North Alabama.

The weakening line of storms will shift into South Alabama Saturday morning, and should be out of the state by early afternoon. Severe storms are not expected across South Alabama Saturday. For North/Central Alabama… Saturday will be a dry day after the lingering early morning showers with a partly sunny sky and a high between 75 and 80 degrees.

Sunday will be a nice day; with a sunny sky the high will be in the low to mid 70s.

NEXT WEEK: Moist air returns Monday along with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. The weather stays unsettled with some risk of showers and storms on a daily basis through Thursday; too early to know if s severe storms will become an issue. The latest global models suggest a stalled surface front could keep some risk of rain in the forecast Friday. Highs reach the mid 80s by Tuesday and Wednesday… See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.
