Storms Developing in the Birmingham Metro Ahead of Main Line

| 8:14 pm October 13, 2014

2014-10-13_20-12-02

Our line of thunderstorms is approaching Jasper, Tuscaloosa and Livingston tonight. It is packing lots of lightning, strong gusty winds and torrential rains. The storms are not severe at this time but the potential is still there for them to produce damaging winds and even brief spin up tornadoes.

Additional storms are forming ahead of the main line over Tuscaloosa County as well as Jefferson and Shelby Counties. These are not severe at this time but could also become severe.

A tornado watch remains in effect for almost all of Central Alabama until midnight.

Fatality in Walker County, Severe Weather Update

| 6:44 pm October 13, 2014

The Daily Mountain Eagle in Jasper reports that there has been a fatality in Dora when a tree fell on a house from this afternoon’s activity.

There was also a fatality last night when a tree fell on a car in Ashdown AR.

Just underscores the fact that there is a very real threat from trees falling on homes and cars.

2014-10-13_18-43-29

RADAR UPDATE
The line of intense storms is now entering Lamar and Pickens Counties. It is bowing out in that area, indicating a high probability of damaging winds.

It should reach the Tuscaloosa area by 7:30 p.m. and the Birmingham area between 8:15 a.m. and 8:30 p.m.

SEVERE WEATHER STILL LIKELY
Conditions are still very favorable for severe weather tonight across Central Alabama. A tornado watch is in effect until midnight.

Instabilities are running 500-1,000 j/kg over the northern half of the state, with values over 1,000 j/kg surging northward into Central Alabama. Lifted condensation levels are at 750m, which is prime for tornado development. And storm relative helicities in the lowest 1 km of the atmosphere are actually pretty high, running 20 m2/s2 in areas north of I-59.

So damaging wind will be the main threat, but an isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out.

Pay attention to the weather overnight and review your safety rules.
