Much of the day will remain quiet, but by early evening, strong to severe thunderstorms will begin tracking into north Alabama and southern middle Tennessee. Right now we expect storms to affect NW Alabama between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m., the I-65 corridor, including the Athens/Decatur/Huntsville metro, between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m., and NE Alabama between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m.
Damaging wind gusts of 60-80 mph are the primary concern. High wind could be widespread, particularly across NW Alabama. A few isolated, short-lived, low end tornadoes are also possible, primarily west of I-65.
Plan on staying weather aware through the day and especially into the evening hours. We'll keep you updated on the storm timeline and expected threats in our newscasts, online at WAFF.com, on our mobile weather app, & on social media.
