Severe Weather Information

Tuesday, April 29th @ 2:15pm

UPDATE-This is the severe weather time-line of when severe weather may begin.


Tuesday, April 29th @ 9am

Autauga and Elmore Counties are under a Slight Risk for severe weather today into tonight. The Storm Prediction Center had included western portions of Elmore County in a Moderate Risk tomorrow evening through Wednesday morning, however the Moderate Risk area, which shows an elevated severe weather potential, has been shifted just slightly to our west.

At this time there is a some uncertainty as to the instability and wind shear in the atmosphere this afternoon and tonight. We will still see a cold front slide through this afternoon. The sun this morning and early afternoon will not be our friend and could help destabilize the environment. If the air mass does destabilize then we could see additional severe weather including tornadoes. The time frame of when severe weather may begin will be any time after 3 pm. The isolated thunderstorms could develop anywhere across the area, including all of Autauga and Elmore Counties. Below are graphics developed by the NWS that show the severe weather timeline and the severe weather threat levels.

All modes of severe weather will be possible.  Autauga and Elmore Counties are under a Flash Flood Watch due to the slow moving nature of these thunderstorms.

More information can be found in the NWS Multimedia Briefing at the following link:

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