Secondary Hazard(s): Tornadoes
Confidence in Hazard(s): High
On Tuesday, severe thunderstorms are possible mainly for central Alabama, with the primary hazards being damaging winds although tornadoes cannot be ruled out. A greater risk more widespread damaging wind gusts will be for areas Pelham points south. Currently, an Enhanced Risk (Level 3/5) is in place for these areas. For the Slight Risk and Marginal Risk areas, this will be a conditional threat. There will also be a great concern for flash flooding as heavy amounts of rainfall move through.
On Wednesday afternoon, a more widespread threat of severe weather is possible state-wide, especially across north-central Alabama. The potential exists for all modes of severe weather, including tornadoes, damaging winds and hail.
