This week has been a hectic weather week for our area. As weather conditions update, this means that the outlook for our region could shift.

Risk Area Update

The Storm Prediction Center has significantly changed the severe weather outlook for Alabama tomorrow. The northwest portion of Alabama is under an “enhanced risk,” while there is a slight risk outside that zone.

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said, “The lack of surface-based instability is the primary reason for the change; the overall tornado threat has been lowered. The "enhanced risk" across Northwest Alabama is for potential for strong winds with a line of storms that will pass through that part of the state tomorrow morning.”
