Severe Storms Possible – National Weather Service, Birmingham

Alabama News Network is tracking the possibility of strong to severe storms that will arrive in our area tonight through Sunday morning.

The latest forecast from the National Weather Service shows an enhanced risk of severe weather in the far northwest corner of our viewing area, including Greene County and parts of Hale and Perry counties.

A slight risk or a marginal risk covers the rest of Central, West and South Alabama.

Risks include a few brief tornadoes, high winds and quarter-size hail.

The timing starts from roughly 10PM Saturday through 9AM Sunday.

The storms are in association with a cold front. Once the front passes your area, the storm threat will be over and you’ll notice a steady fall in temperatures on Sunday.

Now is the time to prepare. First, download the free Alabama News Network weather app and make sure you have the alerts turned on:

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.
