Risk Areas and Levels

There have been some adjustments to the severe weather outlook for our Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa coverage area.

The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has added a “Slight Risk” which is a level 2 out of 5 areas south and west of a line from Vernon to Northport to Montgomery to Greenville and Andalusia,” said James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist.

Also, that “much of the rest of the state, with the exception of the northeast counties, is in a "marginal risk" (level 1/5).”
