Strong Storms Invading The Western Parts Of Central Alabama At 4:00 PM

| June 12, 2018 @ 4:06 pm

At 4:00 PM, we have several strong thunderstorms out there across the western parts of Central Alabama, especially over portions of Tuscaloosa and Fayette counties where a Significant Weather Advisory is in effect until for 4:15 PM for the threat of pea size hail and wind gusts up to 40 MPH. This cluster of storms is moving slowly to the east at 10 MPH.

Another cluster of stronger storms are moving across the northwestern parts of North Alabama, as another Significant Weather Advisory is in effect for parts of Lauderdale and Colbert counties until 4:30 PM for the threat of winds up to and possibly over 40 MPH. This cluster of storms is moving to the east at 15 MPH.

As you can see, there are several storms out there in the western parts of the area along with some trying to sneak westward over the southeastern parts of the area. All of these storms are producing heavy rainfall along with plenty of dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning.

The trend of more showers and storms developing should continue for the next several hours until we lose the heating of the day, before we start to see the activity diminish somewhat. The northwestern part of the state is still under a Marginal Risk for severe storms, where damaging wind gusts up to 60 MPH and some small hail will be possible.

We’ll continue throughout the rest of the afternoon and evening with updates. Any warnings or advisories that are issued by NWS Huntsville or NWS Birmingham will immediately be posted on the blog, so keep checking back often.
