Severe Threat Likely Over For The Night, A Few Noisy Storms Remain

| May 11, 2019 @ 9:36 pm

While we continue to have numerous showers and storms across North/Central Alabama, at this point the threat of severe weather should be over for the remainder of the night and through the overnight hours. We do have a leading edge of storms stretching from Valley in Chambers County back to the southwest through Tuskegee and Fort Deposit and continues into South Alabama. There is plenty of lightning and heavy rain occurring on that leading edge, but none of these are strong or severe.

Another mass of storms is moving into the west and northwestern parts of Central Alabama, mainly over Marion, Lamar, Fayette, and Pickens counties. There is some embedded thunder with these storms, but the main threat looks to be from moderate to heavy rainfall adding to the rainfall totals that we have already seen today.

These showers and storms will continue moving across the area during the late night and overnight hours. Overnight lows will get down into the mid to upper 60s across much of the area.

We still have the potential for strong to severe storms across much of North/Central Alabama during the first half of the day on Sunday with the window for those storms being from 6:00 am to 2:00 pm. Threats will be from damaging winds up to 60 MPH and hail up to quarter-size, but we do have a very small threat of an isolated spin-up tornado or two. The front that has been stalled out in the northwestern parts of North Alabama will finally be pushed through the area. Scattered to numerous storms will form and move across North/Central Alabama through the morning hours with much of the activity being out by 2:00 pm.

We’ll have frequent updates through the morning until the threat is over for North/Central Alabama.
