What Areas Will Experience Severe Weather?

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “before sunrise, we have an organized mass of storms over Tennessee, and these will likely move into North Alabama by mid-morning.”

The threats for the North Alabama area include damaging winds up to 60 mph and quarter-sized hail as it is under a “marginal risk.” Spann said that “the storms are expected to fade and dissipate by afternoon, and a decent part of the state will be dry with a partly sunny sky.”
