A FEW STRONG STORMS LATER TODAY: We have a few light rain showers over Northwest Alabama early this morning, but most of the state is dry with temperatures in the upper 60s and low 70s. To the west, a large mass of rain covers the broad zone from Memphis down into North Louisiana. Much of this is expected to dissipate before reaching Alabama, but additional showers and storms are expected to form this afternoon and early tonight. Where storms do form, they could be strong, and SPC has much of the state in a “marginal risk” (level 1/5).

A Look At The Alabama Severe Weather Threat

A Look At The Alabama Severe Weather Threat

| April 13, 2019 @ 7:06 am

A vigorous weather system will bring the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms across Alabama after midnight into tomorrow morning. While instability values are relatively modest, the dynamics involved will overcome that, most likely, with jet stream level winds of 120 knots, and 90 knots at 500 mb (18.000 feet off the ground). Strong to extreme low level shear will be in place.

EYES ON THE RADAR: No severe storms are in progress across Alabama at mid-afternoon; there is a large mass of rain over the Tennessee Valley, and the rest of the state is mostly dry with only isolated showers. There are some big breaks in the cloud cover over West and Southwest Alabama, where temperatures are approaching 80 degrees… this is one area to watch this evening for new thunderstorm development since the air there is becoming quite unstable.
