Strong Storms Rolling Into The Birmingham Metropolitan Area

| March 23, 2020 @ 6:26 am

Rain and thunderstorms continue to move across the northern half of Central Alabama and up into North Alabama as of 6:20 am. The strongest storms were moving through Blount and Jefferson County and were entering Downtown Birmingham as I type this post. Gusty winds and small hail can be expected with a brief shot of heavy rainfall and a good bit of lightning.

Movement of these storms were to the east at 50 MPH.

The following locations will need to move indoors until these storms pass by: Birmingham, Hoover, Vestavia Hills, Bessemer, Homewood, Mountain Brook, Trussville, Hueytown, Gardendale, Irondale, Leeds, Moody, Fultondale, Center Point, Pleasant Grove, Clay, Pinson, and Tarrant.

The rest of the activity is well less than severe at this point, but you could still expect some lightning and moderate to heavy rain at times.
