Hail, Strong Winds Expected Sunday in Alabama, Possible Isolated Tornado
The weather center of Townsquare Media is closely monitoring the potential for severe weather on Sunday.
“Scattered activity will be possible in the morning ahead of the strongest, severe threat Sunday afternoon through early evening,” said the National Weather Service in Birmingham.
James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “a fast-moving system will bring rain and storms back into the state Sunday. SPC has introduced a "slight risk" (level 2/5) of severe thunderstorms for areas along and south of I-20, and a "marginal risk" (level 1/5) for North Alabama.”
Current Thoughts on Timing
“The main window for strong to severe thunderstorms will come from roughly 2:00 until 9:00 p.m. and the main threats will involve hail and strong straight-line winds. But, an isolated tornado can't be totally ruled out. Temperatures will rise into the 65-75 degree range Sunday afternoon,” said Spann.
