James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “ a few widely scattered showers and storms will likely form during the afternoon and evening hours; odds of any one spot getting wet today are 20-30 percent. SPC has defined a low end "marginal risk" (level 1/5) for the northwest corner of the state where a few storms could produce hail and gusty winds.”

Developing Story on Possible Severe Weather Later This Week

We are several days away from the potential for severe weather. We are closely monitoring a system that could impact our listening areas (West Alabama). Please remember this information could certainly change due to weather conditions.

Spann noted that “the higher severe weather probabilities are to the west Thursday, across the Mid-South, including places like Memphis. But, storms could produce strong winds and hail as they move through Alabama. Maybe a brief, isolated tornado or two. The core window for strong to severe thunderstorms for Alabama will come from about 12 midnight Thursday night through Noon Friday.”
