Severe Weather Information

Monday, October 13th @ 8:51pm

According to the NWS Office in Birmingham, the severe weather threat has diminished and the timing of the squall line has accelerated. Below you will see the image to reflect that acceleration. The tornado threat is low. The primary threat associated with this line is damaging winds with a flash flood threat.

The squall line should move through our area between the hours of 3-5am and after it leaves us, the severe threat will be over.

If there are any further developments, we will let you know.


Monday, October 13 @ 1:15 p.m.

There are basically 2 rounds of severe weather related to this event as are outlined in the Hazardous Weather Outlook issued by the NWS as follows:


First, isolated to scattered thunderstorms will be possible across the western 2/3rds of the area. This activity is expected to begin as early as 3pm across the southwest and then move northward. Some of these thunderstorms could become strong to severe, especially across locations highlighted in red below.


The second round of severe thunderstorms will be possible along a broken line of storms advancing to the east. At this time, we will likely be impacted by this squall line sometime between 4-8am These times are the best estimate of the arrival of the broken line of storms. Please be aware that these times are approximate and are subject to change. We will be monitoring this timing very closely during the early morning hours tomorrow. While severe weather is possible across all of Central Alabama, the red area indicates the area with the greatest severe potential at this time.


Below are a couple of graphic issued by the NWS Office in Birmingham and show the severe weather threats and best estimate at the timing of the severe weather threat for all of Central Alabama.


As always, we will be monitoring this system closely and will keep you updated.
