TORNADO WATCH: Parts of Viewing Area Until 7PM; Severe Threat Lasts Until Early Thursday Morning
Alabama News Network is tracking severe weather that will be moving across Alabama from now through early Thursday morning. Our Weather Authority team of meteorologists says to expect several rounds of severe weather, which will include the threat for tornadoes, possibly EF-2 or greater.
A Tornado Watch is in effect until 7PM for much of the Alabama News Network viewing area, including these counties:
The SPC has extended “High Risk” (level 5/5) for severe storms today farther east into Central Alabama, including Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Clanton and Demopolis, with a “Moderate Risk” (level 4/5) for pretty much the rest of the state. But don’t focus on specific colors or lines on the maps, the entire state of Alabama is significant threat for severe storms.
Now is the time to prepare. First, download the free Alabama News Network weather app:
iPhone – Android
Next, make sure you have more than one way to get weather alerts. A NOAA weather radio in addition to your phone (with your emergency alerts turned on) make for a good combination. Do not depend on sirens to keep you protected.
Know where to go inside your home if severe weather is imminent. If you live in a mobile home, you need to find sturdy shelter somewhere else. Plan now for what you will do.
Alabama News Network will bring you live coverage on-air, online and on your phone. We will be staffed around the clock until the severe weather threat passes.
