Another vigorous spring weather system will impact Alabama today, with the dual threat of severe thunderstorms and flooding.

THIS MORNING: Rain and thunderstorms are over much of Alabama this morning, ahead of a northward moving warm front. These storms are elevated, in a stable airmass, but are still capable of producing small hail, strong, damaging straight line winds, and heavy rain. There is no tornado threat with the morning storms, but remember, straight line winds can produce tornado-like damage. There has been extensive tree damage this morning through parts of Chilton, Coosa, and Tallapoosa counties... winds in spots likely exceeded 80 mph.

THIS AFTERNOON/TONIGHT: An outbreak of tornadoes and severe thunderstorms is expected today from parts of the lower Mississippi Valley across much of the the Southeast, including the southern 2/3 of Alabama. In addition to tornadoes, many of the storms will have very large hail and wind damage. The severe threat will be greatest from north-central Louisiana eastward to southern and central Mississippi, southern and central Alabama into south-central Georgia.

SETUP: The mid-level jet will become coupled with the low-level jet by mid to late afternoon, creating a favorable combination of lift and shear for potentially strong tornadoes. The greatest chance for a regional cluster of tornadoes is forecast from just southeast of Jackson, Mississippi and Hattiesburg, Mississippi eastward across southwest and south-central Alabama in the "moderate risk" area. In addition to the tornado threat, large hail and wind damage will be likely across a large part of the Southeast this afternoon and evening. The wind-damage threat is expected to increase as a mass of thunderstorms moves eastward across southeastern Alabama and into south-central Georgia by early this evening.

SPC has defined a "moderate risk" (level 4/5) for areas south of a line from Eutaw to Jemison to Alexander City to Lafayette, down to just north of Mobile. An "enhanced risk" (Level 3/5) is defined as far north as Tuscaloosa, Hoover, and Wedowee. There is a "slight risk" (level 2/5) up to Sulligent, Remlap, and Piedmont, and a "marginal risk" (level 1/5) is defined as far north as Hamilton, Vinemont, and Fort Payne. No severe storms are expected over the Tennessee Valley

PLACEMENT: The position of the warm front this afternoon will mark the leading edge of the tornado threat. We believe the warm front will be somewhere near, or just south of I-20 (Tuscaloosa to Birmingham to Anniston). North of the warm front over North Alabama, tornado threat is very low, but storms will produce heavy rain and possibly some small hail.

TIMING: The main window for severe thunderstorms will come from 2:00 p.m. until 12:00 midnight. The threat begins initially in West Alabama, shifting eastward through the afternoon and evening hours.

THREATS: Thunderstorms over the southern 2/3 of Alabama will be capable of producing large hail, damaging winds, and a few tornadoes. Strong tornadoes (EF2 or higher) will be possible in the "moderate risk" area.

FLOODING: Rain will be heavy at times, and flooding is possible. A flash flood watch is in effect for much of Central and South Alabama where amounts of 2 to 4 inches are expected over the next 48 hours.

CALL TO ACTION: You know the drill; be sure you have a way of hearing severe weather warnings, and an action plan if you are in a tornado warning polygon.

*Have a NOAA Weather Radio in your home and business, properly programmed with a fresh battery in case of power failure.

*Be sure WEA (Wireless Emergency Alerts) enabled on your phone… this is not an app, but built into every phone sold in the U.S. Check settings, and notifications, and be sure emergency alerts are on. Have the free ABC 33/40 weather app on your phone as a secondary way of getting warnings. Search the App Store for “ABC 33/40 Weather” if you don’t have it already.

*In a site built home, identify the safe place. Small room, lowest floor, near the center of the house, away from windows. And, in that safe place, have helmets for everyone in the family (including adults!), portable air horns, and hard sole shoes.

*You can’t stay in a mobile home if you are in a tornado warning polygon. Know the closest shelter, and how to get there quickly.

*Sheltering from a tornado is first priority when it comes to the COVID-19 situation. A tornado is an immediate threat to life; get to your safe place or shelter and do the best you can to protect yourself from exposure to the virus.

As pointed out above, this system most likely won’t produce 24 tornadoes like last Sunday. But, all it takes is one tornado in the entire state. If that one comes through your neighborhood, it is YOUR red letter day. We all have to be prepared.

WATCH US: Remember, when tornado warnings are issued please watch our coverage on ABC 33/40. You don't need cell service, cable, or satellite... we are free "over the air" TV with an inexpensive antenna. We also stream our coverage on the ABC 33/40 app, the ABC 33/40 web site, and on the ABC 33/40 page.

I received over 500 messages last Sunday during severe weather coverage asking for individual briefings; unfortunately I have to focus my attention on the TV coverage and answering those messages is impossible during the event.

ANXIETY: I think Alabamians are tired of dealing with COVID-19, and after last Sunday, tired of dealing with severe weather. We don’t do this to scare anyone, or make them more anxious, but at the same time we have to let you know there is a risk of severe thunderstorms tomorrow. But remember, even on a big severe weather day, odds of any one place being hit by a tornado are low. We will get through the day together.

Be weather alert!

Be weather alert!

ACTIVE PATTERN: We are in the core of the spring tornado season in Alabama, and we have multiple severe weather threats in the days ahead. Today will be warm with a mix of sun and clouds; temperatures should reach the low 80s this afternoon. The air becomes unstable, and scattered showers and thunderstorms will form by early afternoon. These could be strong, possibly severe, with potential for hail and strong gusty winds. High resolution model data suggests the best potential for the stronger storms this afternoon will be across the central counties of the state.

LATE TONIGHT/EARLY TOMORROW: An approaching cold front will bring potential for severe thunderstorms to Alabama after midnight tonight, and through the pre-dawn hours tomorrow. SPC has defined an "enhanced risk" (level 3/5) of severe storms for that part of Alabama near the Tennessee border, including places like Muscle Shoals, Athens, and Huntsville. A "slight risk" (level 2/5) is up as far south as Camden and Eufaula, and a "marginal risk" (level 1/5) is on the board down to Atmore and Dothan.

TIMING: A line of severe storms will enter Northwest Alabama around midnight/1:00 a.m.... then pushing southward during the early morning hours. The line should reach places like Tuscaloosa/Birmingham/Anniston/Gadsden around 3:00/4:00 a.m.... and then Montgomery/Opelika around 6:00 a.m.

THREATS: Storms overnight will be capable of producing large hail and damaging winds. A few isolated tornadoes are possible as well.

RAIN: The thunderstorms will be moving fairly quickly, so rain amounts should be generally 1/2 inch for most places; flooding issues are not expected.

CALL TO ACTION: Remember, this is a "middle of the night" severe weather event, so be sure you have a way of hearing warnings. Every Alabama home needs a NOAA Weather Radio, with fresh batteries and properly programmed. Have WEA (Wireless Emergency Alerts) enabled on your phone, and get the free ABC 33/40 Weather app. Do not put your phone in the "Do Not Disturb" mode. And, in your safe place have helmets for everyone, along with portable air horns (if you need to get the attention of first responders), and hard sole shoes for everyone. And, if you live in a mobile home, know where you are going and how to get there quickly.

COVID 19: The decision to seek shelter in a community storm shelter is certainly made more difficult by the consideration for COVID-19, and each individual will need to make an educated decision on where and when to shelter from a tornado. At this time, the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) is recommending that your first priority should be to protect yourself from a potential tornado. If a warning is issued for your area, you are more likely to be affected by the tornado than the virus.

However, the decisions to open any community shelters are done at the local or county level. Before you make a decision to go to a community shelter, you should check with your community shelter managers to ensure they are open, and if there are any local COVID-19 considerations. Certainly, wherever you choose to shelter from a tornado, you should use as many precautions as possible to inhibit the spread of COVID-19 as best as you can. If you rely on public community shelters, now may be the time to explore other options that might keep you safer from severe weather and possibly limit your exposure to COVID-19.

TOMORROW THROUGH SATURDAY: The sky becomes sunny tomorrow with a high between 70 and 75 degrees. The weather stays dry through Saturday; the high Friday will be in the mid 60s, and close to 70 Saturday. Keep in mind Saturday morning will be cold for April with lows between 36 and 44... some of the colder spots could see a bit of light frost. Clouds will increase late Saturday through Saturday night.

SEVERE WEATHER THREAT EASTER SUNDAY: SPC has defined a severe weather threat for most of the Deep South, including Alabama, in their "Day 5" outlook for Sunday. A dynamic weather system will interact with unstable air, setting the stage for strong to severe thunderstorms. It is simply too early to discuss timing or the magnitude of the threat; we will do that after the pre-dawn storms tomorrow. But it looks like all modes of severe storms will be possible Sunday, including large hail, damaging winds, and a few tornadoes.

NEXT WEEK: After the storms Sunday, temperatures are expected to be well below average next week, and we could easily see one or two mornings with a freeze/frost threat over the northern half of the state. Growers will need to watch temperature forecasts closely. Most of the week, for now, looks dry.
