The National Weather Service in Birmingham has announced that a “marginal risk” has been introduced for “all of Central Alabama except for a few areas in the northeast.”

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “a wave aloft will bring showers and thunderstorms to the state Thursday. SPC has introduced a low end, "marginal risk" of severe thunderstorms for the southern 3/4 of the state, for areas south of a line from Hamilton to Cullman to Gadsden.”

Currently, the major threats for Thursday are damaging winds up to 60 mph and hail.

“A few of the stronger storms could produce small hail and gusty winds, but for now this doesn't look like a tornado setup with the best dynamic support displaced to the north, away from the better instability,” said Spann.


As of right now, the timing of the system is Thursday afternoon into the evening hours. A “better chance of the heavier thunderstorms will come during the late morning and afternoon hours, and the high will remain in the 70s,” said Spann.
