Less than 18 hours after strong storms and reported tornadoes moved through West Alabama, the area will have to brace itself once again on Tuesday for much of the same.

According to the National Weather Service in Birmingham, severe weather will move back into the state in the early afternoon and into the evening.

The air over Alabama remains unstable, which could lead to all types of severe weather - large hail, heavy rains, strong winds, and possibly tornadoes. Please keep a plan of action in place for today because the weather could be just as intense as Monday night.

The good news for residents is that the air will become much drier following this round of storms and will bring moderate temperatures and sunny skies the remainder of the week and into the weekend.

Please remember that we have a Severe Weather Guide that will provide you with the latest information and recommendations on how to prepare. Also, should the severe weather bring tornado warnings to our area again, we'll carry meteorologist James Spann live on our airwaves.
