Another round of strong storms will be possible for parts of Alabama on Monday afternoon, and some of those could pack quite a punch, with large hail and damaging winds possible – according to forecasters.
Locally, we’ll likely see some showers during the morning hours – with a good chance for a few thunderstorms in the afternoon. Our high should top out around 70.
Storms could develop and intensify ahead of a cold front – with the Storm Prediction Center on Sunday afternoon expanding its marginal risk of severe weather to include much of the state, from north to south Alabama. A “marginal risk” means isolated severe storms will be possible. The National Weather Service in Birmingham has upped the ante slightly by placing a slight risk rating over some of its counties in central Alabama
Forecasters said the best conditions for storms will actually be south of Interstate 20. The weather service said the main risks include hail up to the size of ping pong balls – with damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph. The best chances for storms will begin during Monday afternoon during the day’s peak heating period.
Tonight, it’ll remain cloudy with rainfall likely – our overnight low 47
Tomorrow – overcast with a 20% chance of showers – cooler temperatures with a high just making it to 60.
