Potential severe weather tonight. Make a plan and stay weather alert. Download the free Red Cross Emergency App in your app store to receive alerts and information on emergencies in your area. More safety tips: RedCross.org/storms
it is Ironic that MANY counties are under a Tornado Watch with severe weather in Central Alabama and the Birmingham NWS has internet issues. Here is what you get when you look at alerts by county in Alabama: We are experiencing technical problems... Please try back later. wonderful. Nice Job NWS! you're protecting us alright.
Sumter is under a severe thunderstorm watch until 7 p.m. tonight.
I have sent private messages and email, but guess those aren't checked. What happened to the old radar that we had in 2020? This current cartoonish version is too esoteric, too bumbling and too vague to be of any value to those of us who simply want to go online and see what is headed our way. Please, please, please, bring back what was working! I will bring a case of RCs and Moon Pies to your office as a reward for your actually helping us non meterologists out here.
Hi, was just wondering why NWS Huntsville was issuing your products today? Thanks.
I know ya'll are very busy with central and north Alabama and God Bless ya'll for keeping us updated. But can you tell me anything about Lee County (Auburn, Salem) area? Thank you!
Can we get the old Radar back... this new one is junk and takes forever to load
I thought people would get a nice laugh at this. It's one of the former NOAA Weather Radio voices. A parody of the voice "Tom" ranting about the voice Paul, his successor.
The atmosphere is extremely unstable and rapidly developing storms could become severe very quickly. This includes wind gusts to 80 mph mimicking tornado damage, hail to the size of baseballs, and strong to violent tornadoes. A Particularly Dangerous Situation Watch is now in effect.

Happy Birthday NWS!
Thoughts on the model runs at 240 hrs? Nightmare type stuff, several inches of snow followed by several days of extreme cold. Some model consensus and consistency showing up in the last couple runs..
