Sorry, no time to celebrate. It's time to monitor the various weather systems that could bring dangerous, severe weather to Alabama in early '23.
One system we are monitoring closely could bring tornadoes and damaging high winds on just the 3rd day of 2023....Jan. 3, 2023.
The National Weather Service in Birmingham said that “an active pattern continues across the continental US. As such, a storm system will enter our region early next week and will bring an increase in rain showers and thunderstorms starting Monday.”
Looking Ahead to Tuesday
“More widespread thunderstorm potential is forecast on Tuesday ahead of an advancing cold front. Some of these storms could be strong to severe.”
Damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph
Quarter size hail
Localized flooding (Tuesday into Wednesday morning)
The Storm Prediction Center has nearly the entire state under a severe weather risk for Tuesday.
Here are some highlights from James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist.
A morning round of rain and storms could limit instability values during the afternoon and evening hours.
The main dynamics will be passing well to the north of the state by Tuesday evening, resulting in a weakening low-level jet.
The wind profiles become somewhat unidirectional late in the day.

Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life.
