We are closely watching a system that will move into Alabama late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. This system will bring widespread rain to our area plus there is the risk of severe weather along the Gulf Coast with some potential impacts for southern portions of Central Alabama.

Another area of concern is from non-thunderstorm activity as “winds may gust as high as 35 to 40 mph area-wide as the system passes by,” said the National Weather Service in Birmingham.

Timing

Current tracking places the timeline from Midnight until 8 a.m. Wednesday for the main activity of winds, rain, and storms.

Threats

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that the “storms across Southwest Alabama, and along the Gulf Coast tomorrow night could produce damaging winds and a few tornadoes. A strong tornado (EF-2 or higher) is possible as well. Some hail could fall from stronger storms.”

“The main tornado threat is in the enhanced risk, including Mobile, Baldwin, Washington, Clarke, Monroe, Conecuh, and Escambia counties. There will be basically no surface-based instability over North/Central Alabama, which will prevent a tornado threat there,” said Spann.

Storm Prediction Center Outlook

"Enhanced Risk" (level 3/5) of severe thunderstorms for the southwest corner of Alabama

"Slight Risk" (level 2/5) as far north as Linden, Selma, and Troy

"Marginal Risk" extends as far north as Birmingham, but severe storms are not expected over the northern half of the state.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
