The National Weather Service in Birmingham's forecast calls for severe storms this weekend, and it looks as if the best chance of severe weather will be in areas west of I-65. Saturday night and Sunday's forecasts call for a near 100% chance of rain and thunderstorms as a cold front approaches. The severe weather threat includes hail, damaging lightning, and even isolated tornadoes. We'll keep you updated as the weekend approaches, so be sure to check in for the latest information and forecasts from the NWS and our Chief Meteorologist James Spann.
