Marginal Risk For Severe Storms In The North; Few Showers Popping Up

| June 12, 2018 @ 9:18 am

Radar check at 9:05 AM is already showing a few isolated showers popping up over the northwestern parts of the area, especially in Franklin County. A few more isolated showers are moving into the northwestern parts of Lamar County from eastern Mississippi. These showers are moving very slowly to the east.

As you can see by the green line on the radar image, everyone north of that line has been defined in a Marginal Risk for severe storms throughout the day and into the evening. We’ll continue to see storms that have the possibility of becoming strong with isolated damaging wind gusts and some hail during the afternoon and into the evening hours.

The main window for showers and storms throughout North/Central Alabama will be from 12:00 PM to 10:00 PM today, but I wouldn’t be surprised if a few more storms form before the noon hour, and a few storms linger on into the late night hours.

This is the latest run of the HRRR simulated radar valid at 3:00 PM and it shows that storms should be pretty active across the area. The one thing that we have to remember is that these models doesn’t handle convective storms very well, so I believe there may be even more storms out there than this. This image should give you the general idea of storms out there.

We’ll keep you posted throughout the day, especially when storms start to become strong. Whenever any part of the North/Central Alabama area goes under an advisory or warning, it will be posted on the blog immediately.
