Late May Severe Weather Likely for West, Central Alabama Today
We have had a few days of strong to severe weather across Alabama. For today, Thursday, May 26, the Storm Prediction Center has most of the Yellowhammer State under a “marginal risk” for severe thunderstorms excluding the far west and northwest counties.
James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “heavier storms will be capable of producing hail and gusty winds. There is a very low-end risk of an isolated, brief tornado. Additional rain amounts of around one inch are likely for most places.”
The National Weather Service in Birmingham said that " A cold front will pass across Central AL today. This means more chances for showers and storms. There's a small risk of seeing a few strong to severe storms from roughly 11 AM-8 PM for generally the eastern two-thirds of the area."
Good news is on the horizon as the rain ends this evening pushing towards a clearing sky with Friday and temperatures below average. Then for the holiday weekend, you can expect a slight warm-up with sunny days. There will be more on the weekend outlook tomorrow.
