According to the National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center, we could see thunderstorms late Monday night into Tuesday, and these storms could bring heavy rain, damaging winds, large hail, and long-track tornadoes.

ABC 33/40 Chief Meteorologist James Spann also posted about the potential severe weather threat on Facebook this morning:

Based on the projected shear and instability values, it sure looks like thunderstorms across Alabama with this system will have the potential for large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes. For now, the severe weather seems most likely late Monday night into Tuesday… generally in the range from midnight Monday night to noon Tuesday. SPC already has a risk of severe storms defined for most of Alabama during this time frame.

It is still early to be more specific, but with good model consistency, the pattern, and the time of the year, I would recommend everyone review your severe weather plan this weekend.

Make sure you and your family have a severe weather plan in place, as it's important to have a way to receive weather warnings in the overnight hours. We'll continue to monitor the situation and bring you the latest forecast information.
