Scattered severe storms possible today across Alabama


A dry line and cold front will trigger storms across west Texas Friday morning.

The Storm Prediction Center placed areas from Kansas to Alabama under a risk for severe storms Friday and Saturday.

The weekend will start out with some fine weather, with warmer temperatures on the way and no rain expected through most of Saturday. There’s a level two out of five severe weather threat in effect through late afternoon Saturday.

If storms move across your area, you could receive strong wind gusts up to 60 to 65 miles per hour, large hail and brief heavy downpours. A line of storms is expected to form along the I-35 corridor between Oklahoma City and Dallas by midday Friday.

A few strong storms are possible on Monday, March 27, 2017.

Isolated tornadoes and localized flash flooding are also possible. The good news is based on current data we’re not looking at a significant risk for tornadoes with any of these events.

Here are a few snapshots from Futuretrack as the line of storms moves through.

The most likely time for the potential of severe storms to bubble up will be starting at noon and lasting until 5 p.m.

We are rain and storm-free through Thursday afternoon, though you’ll want to hold onto your hats, loose patio furniture and any small children.


4PM FRIDAY: Storms will be underway and advancing to the east.
