James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist notes that "the sky is clearing over West Alabama, where temperatures have recovered into the low 70s. Additional showers and a few thunderstorms will likely develop ahead of a cold front over the western side of the state over the new few hours, moving eastward this evening."

Spann also mentioned that "the airmass was totally worked over by the morning thunderstorms, so the overall severe risk for the evening hours is low, but a few strong storms could form with gusty winds and possibly some small hail. The sky will clear late tonight as dry air works in following the passage of the cold front."
