The National Weather Service is going with significant weather alerts for now, instead of severe thunderstorm warnings ahead of our line of intense showers.
There was a burst of reports of trees down around Columbus MS, prompting the earlier warnings.
There could still be scattered tree and power line damage from the line, which will produce wind gusts between 40-50 mph as it heads east.
Here is the radar at 7:50:
The best chances for severe weather will be south of a line from Linden to Montgomery to Phenix City. There could be several severe thunderstorm warnings, as well as a few tornado warnings down there.
North of that line, there are still strong winds aloft, but little or no instability, no widespread problems are not anticipated. Just keep your favorite source of warning information on alert and close at hand and keep in touch with the AlabamaWX blog!
