This weekend you will enjoy temperatures in the low 80s with partly sunny skies. Then a system will move through our area that will bring the chance of severe thunderstorms on Monday afternoon into the evening.

We are closely monitoring this situation over the weekend to have you prepared for Monday. The counties that the Townsquare Media Radio Stations cover are Bibb, Fayette, Greene, Hale, Lamar, Perry, Pickens, Sumter, Tuscaloosa, and Walker. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) places our Townsquare Media Coverage areas at this time under a “slight risk” (level 2/5).

Possible Timeline and Threats

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “the window for the heavier storms will come from about 12 noon to 8 p.m. The main threat will come from strong straight-line winds and hail and an isolated tornado can’t be ruled out, but for the moment conditions don’t seem especially favorable for tornado formation with the better shear and dynamics to the north.”

Be sure to stay weather aware as weather information and guidance on this incoming system could change due to numerous variables. As always we will bring you updates over the weekend on the Tuscaloosa Thread as well as our Townsquare Media Radio Stations.
