Rain/Storms Arrive Late Tomorrow Night

Rain/Storms Arrive Late Tomorrow Night

| February 23, 2018 @ 6:24 am

WEEKEND STORMS: I think a decent part of the day tomorrow will be dry; showers should be widely scattered. A warm south wind will increase, averaging 10-20 mph by afternoon. Then, late tomorrow night, the cold front that has been parked just north and west of Alabama will get a southward nudge, and will bring a band of showers and thunderstorms into the state. SPC has a “slight risk” of severe storms defined for Northwest Alabama, west of a line from Huntsville to Jasper to Reform, with a “marginal risk” down to Gadsden, Birmingham, and Reform.
