On Tuesday, a cold front is expected to sweep through the region, bringing the possibility of strong to severe storms to the northern parts of Central Alabama. Currently, this could impact some portions of the Townsquare Media coverage area.

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist, said, “The high Tuesday will be close to 80, and the air will be unstable, which is favorable for severe thunderstorms. But the kinematic fields remain in question; the better forcing will most likely be north of the state with somewhat unidirectional wind profiles.”
