Severe weather is possible across Alabama on Monday, with an even better chance of storms statewide on Tuesday.
Areas in central and eastern Alabama have a slight risk, which is Level 2 out of 5, and means scattered severe storms will be possible – while the rest of the state except for parts of north and south Alabama, has a marginal risk. A marginal risk is Level 1 and means isolated severe storms will be possible.
Then on Tuesday there will be an enhanced risk, or Level 3, for all of north and most of central Alabama and a slight risk (Level 2), and marginal risk (Level 1), for parts of south Alabama.
Monday’s storms could have damaging winds, hail and heavy rainfall possible during the day and into the evening hours. Today could feel much like a summer preview with humidity levels ramping up; that could help to set off storms later this afternoon.
The threat for severe weather could increase on Tuesday, with several severe storms possible across much of the state; rain and storms are expected to develop ahead of a cold front. There could be rain on and off throughout the day Tuesday – however the best chance for bad weather will come during the afternoon, going into the evening. All modes of severe weather will be on the table for Tuesday – including a possibility for tornadoes, damaging winds, hail and heavy rain.
That rain is expected to move out of the state on Wednesday – with drier, and slightly cooler weather, in store for the last half of the work week.
