Marginal Risk Continues For The Southern 2/3rds Of Central Alabama Through The Night

| February 18, 2020 @ 6:49 pm

The Storm Prediction Center continues a MARGINAL RISK for severe storms through the remainder of tonight for the southern 2/3rds of Central Alabama.

Over the past couple of hours, we have seen some cells rotate, but so far, those have been either too week or too broad to produce a tornado.

Isolated damaging winds up to 60 MPH remains to be the main threat across the risk locations, while a non-zero threat of a brief tornado and small hail remains possible as well.

A Flash Flood Watch continues for the southern tier of counties in North Alabama until 8:00 pm tonight, while another Flash Flood Watch continues for much of Central Alabama until 6:00 am Wednesday morning.

A Flash Flood Warning continues until 8:45 pm tonight for portions of Tuscaloosa, Jefferson, and Shelby counties. While the heaviest rainfall has now moved south of the warning location, a shield of light to moderate rainfall remains.
