Some Showers Out There Just After Midday; Severe Threat Removed For This Afternoon

| March 23, 2020 @ 1:18 pm

As of 1:00 pm, we continue to have light shower activity mainly along and just north of the I-59 corridor from northeast to southwest along with showers over the extreme eastern and down to the I-85 corridor. No strong storms at the moment and it should remain that way through the rest of the afternoon and into the evening hours.

The Storm Prediction Center has removed the Marginal Risk that was defined over the southern portions of Central Alabama as the threat for severe storms no longer exists this afternoon and evening.

We’ll continue to have widely scattered to numerous showers across the area, but there will be dry spots out there as well. Where rain is not falling, skies will remain mainly cloudy. Afternoon highs will be in the upper 60s to the lower 80s across the area from north to south. Skies will be mostly cloudy and we’ll continue to have a chance of showers across the area for tonight and through the overnight hours. A clap of thunder or two may be possible, but no severe weather is expected. Lows will be in the mid-50s to the lower 60s.

A Slight Risk of severe storms is up for all of North Alabama and for the top northern row of counties in Central Alabama, while a Marginal Risk is up for the rest of the northern half of Central Alabama on Tuesday. We continue to have a risk of damaging straight-line winds up to 60 MPH and hail up to 1-inch in diameter during the afternoon and evening hours on Tuesday. The northern half of the area will see rain and thunderstorm likely at times while chances drop rapidly as you move south over the southern half of the area. Highs will top out in the upper 70s to the mid-80s.
