SPC Risk Upgraded to “Enhanced”; Damaging Wind Main Threat

| 2:54 pm June 17, 2016

2016-06-17_14-52-49

The SPC has upgraded much of Central Alabama to an “enhanced” risk of severe weather.

In terms of levels…enhanced is above slight. The scale now goes from marginal to slight to enhanced to moderate to high.

Storms dropping across North Central Alabama right now are moving into an area of very high instability. They are being aided by an increasing northwesterly flow over northeastern Alabama as well.

Dry air aloft is adding to the potential for damaging winds, which will be very high with thunderstorms through the afternoon.

There will be multiple severe thunderstorm warnings all afternoon and into the evening.

Large Hail Possible

| 2:14 pm June 17, 2016

A complex of strong and severe storms continues to track south through West Alabama. Currently the most intense storms are impacting portions of Marion, Walker, and Fayette counties.

Along with the threat of dangerous and frequent lightning, storms are capable of producing winds in excess of 60mph, along with lots of hail. Hail stones could possibly be as large as ping pong balls, and with the cell in Marion County, golf ball size hail is possible.

High instability values are providing plenty of fuel for the storms today, and updrafts are very strong and thus the large hail. The next few hours, these storms are likely to intensify and we are urging caution for anyone in the path of these storms.
