Storms Approaching The Birmingham Metro, Marginal Risk Continues

| May 11, 2019 @ 5:13 pm

At 5:10 pm, rain and thunderstorms are starting to enter into the Birmingham metropolitan area, but at this point none of this activity is severe. We do have to continue to watch for very heavy rain at times along with gusty winds and dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning.

The line as a whole stretches from the TN/AL state line through the west-central parts of the area and exiting into South Alabama through our southwestern locations.

A Marginal Risk for severe storms continue through the rest of the daylight hours and should come to an end around 9:00 pm tonight. By that time, we should lose enough of the instability from the daytime heating to get the storms to start calming down and dissipating somewhat. We still have the chance of scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms through the overnight hours, but they are not expected to be strong to severe.
