A Few Stronger Storms Still Out There At 9:30 PM

| May 15, 2018 @ 9:39 pm

We continue to have tropical downpours and plenty of lightning out there in parts of North and Central Alabama at 9:30 PM, with the strongest of these storms located over Winston County. Double Springs is currently under a very heavy downpour with plenty of cloud-to-ground lightning, along with the Lynn and Nauvoo (Walker County) communities.

These will continue to push slowly to the south-southwest at around 5-10 MPH. These storms will stay active for at least the next hour or so before starting to play out right around or just after midnight. Surface instability will continue to slowly diminish as we continue to cool from the daytime heating, but scattered showers and thunderstorm chances will continue throughout the late night and overnight hours… less in strength and in rainfall amounts.

I do believe that we should stay below severe criteria throughout the remainder of the night, but one or two storms may be strong enough to warrant a Significant Weather Advisory until just after midnight. We’ll keep you posted.
