Just A Few Scattered Showers Out There At Midday; Marginal Risk Continues

| May 12, 2019 @ 12:27 pm

CONDITIONS AT 12:30 PM

The good news is that the activity on radar at this point is much lighter and more scattered in nature then what we have seen during the late hours on Saturday through the morning hours today. The cold front has now made its way to the I-65 corridor, so locations west of Decatur down to Moundville should not see any strong storms this afternoon. All of the shower activity at this point is pushing off to the east. Temperatures at this time are in the upper 60s to the upper 70s across the area.

MARGINAL RISK FOR SEVERE STORMS THROUGH 7:00 PM TONIGHT

As the cold front makes its way through Central Alabama, a few more showers and thunderstorms may develop through the main heating of the day with the possibility of a couple of those becoming strong to marginally severe. SPC has a Marginal Risk up for locations south of a line from Ider (Dekalb Co.) to Warrior (Jefferson Co.) to Demopolis (Marengo Co.). The better chance for stronger to severe storms will be south of a line from Selma to Alexander City. Damaging winds up to 60 MPH and quarter size hail are the main threats, but there is a non-zero tornado threat as well. It still is the Spring Severe Weather Season, so we still have to watch every system. Afternoon highs top out in the lower 70s to the lower 80s. A few lingering showers may hang around for a while after sunset, but all activity should be out of the area by midnight. Clouds will start to decrease and temperatures will be heading down into the lower 50s to the lower 60s.

MUCH BETTER WEATHER TO START THE WORK WEEK
We’ll have plenty of sunshine to start off the work week and some cooler and refreshing temperatures. Monday will be mostly clear throughout the day with highs topping out in the lower 70s to the lower 80s across the area. Tuesday will feature near maximum sunshine and highs throughout the 70s across the area.
