Severe Storms, Tornadoes Possible in Tuscaloosa, Alabama This Weekend
Two rounds of severe storms are in the forecast for West Alabama this weekend.
Severe storms will be possible across the state Friday; these could bring damaging winds and large hail to West Alabama. The National Weather Service in Birmingham's most recent forecast has storms developing at the Mississippi-Alabama state line around 10 a.m.
Severe storms are possible again on Saturday as storms begin to develop after midnight. ABC 33/40 Chief Meteorologist James Spann believes the greatest threat will be Saturday morning:
The main window for severe storms will come from 4:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. Saturday… during that time frame thunderstorms will be capable of producing large hail, strong, potentially damaging winds, and a tornado or two. On the positive side… Saturday afternoon looks rain-free for most of the state with a clearing sky and temperatures in the 70s.
We will continue to monitor the forecast and provide you with updates as this latest round of storms develops.
