Rain and Storms Over Central and North Alabama, Severe Weather Stays to the South

| March 11, 2018 @ 3:21 am

Where did the last hour go? Away. Daylight saving time is now in effect across most of the U.S.

At this hour, a large mass of rain is moving across North and Central Alabama.

There is some embedded thunder across parts of Blount, Etowah, Calhoun and Cleburne Counties. There have been a few lightning flashes across parts of Jefferson, Tuscaloosa and Shelby Counties.

The strongest storm in Central Alabama is moving into Perry and Dallas Counties.

Back in Mississippi, a complex of thunderstorms has formed over Central Mississippi that is now moving rapidly southeastward. There is a significant threat of wind damage from this system. There has been a tornado warning north of Jackson MS, but it will not be continued past its expiration time.

The powerful storms will cross I-20 east of Jackson shortly. They have large hail also.

These storms will push toward Choctaw, Washington and Clarke Counties in Southwest Alabama.

For the rest of Central Alabama, it will be a wet and occasionally thundery night. There is no threat of severe weather north of a line from Livingston to Demopolis to Selma and Montgomery. There could be a damaging wind gust south of that, with a higher chance for severe weather as the complex of storms moves into Southwest Alabama between 5 and 6 a.m.
