Stay weather alert tonight. The threat for strong to severe thunderstorms will be with us for much of the evening and overnight hours. The greatest concern for strong tornadoes, winds near 100mph, will be from I-65 to the west between 8pm and Midnight. This is when we are most likely to see isolated supercell thunderstorms develop ahead of the main line. The main line of storms will be tracking slowly from the west to east overnight tonight. The line will finally move into Georgia around 7am. Along the main line we expect to see a few embedded lower end tornadoes that could produce wind damage up to 85 mph. We will also be keeping an eye out for straight line winds up to 60 mph and quarter sized hail. Significant lightning and over 2 inches of rain is also possible with the stronger storms. Stay tuned to WAFF 48 we will have you covered online, on your mobile and on the air. It is good idea to make sure you have your weather radio on with fresh batteries. Know where your flashlight is because these storms will all move in after the sunsets. Power outages and TV satellite interruptions can be expected if storms become strong to severe.
Much quieter weather will move in behind a cold front Wednesday and afternoon temperatures will fall into the middle 50s by sunset. Thursday and Friday will be normal with highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s.
Clouds will increase throughout the day on Saturday with showers moving in Saturday night. This chance of rain could last through Monday night.
Stay safe tonight.
