Severe Weather Threat Really Winding Down Now

| December 1, 2018 @ 7:34 pm

The latest update from the Storm Prediction Center and they have removed the Slight Risk of severe storms from all of Central Alabama and has shifted the Marginal Risk mainly for the north half of the area and the extreme eastern parts. Locations such as Russellville, Haleyville, Carbon Hill, Tuscaloosa, Brent, Clanton, Montgomery, Troy, and points west have been cleared from any severe storm risk.

Activity across the area has really quieted down from just a few hours earlier, as there are only a couple of showers across Central Alabama at 7:20 pm. Much of the stronger storms are now north of the state and along the Florida panhandle and up into southern Georgia.

Models continue to show a good deal of instability and shear to move across the area through the evening and late night hours before moving out of the state during the pre-dawn hours on Sunday. STP values are at their highest right now, but those will drop greatly from now through the late night hours. There may be a few storms to redevelop over the southeastern portions of the area, some of which could be strong to marginally severe, but the likelihood is small for that to happen.

Main threats continue to be an isolated tornado or two, strong wind gusts up to 60 MPH, and some hail. The cold front is now entering the northwestern corner of the state and will cross the area throughout the evening and into the overnight hours. Once the front passes your location, the severe threat will totally be over as the atmosphere will quickly become stable.

If anything pops up, we’ll keep you updated. I’ll have another update out before 10:00 pm.
