Wednesday Severe Weather Overview

A cold front will move over the state of Alabama today. This means there is the possibility of severe thunderstorms ahead and along the cold front. James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “the main threat will come from strong winds and hail; wind profiles aren't really favorable for tornado development. Still, a brief tornado or two can't be totally ruled out where small-scale boundaries are involved.”

This means you should stay weather aware and prepared. As always, we will provide nonstop severe weather coverage if a tornado warning for the following counties, Bibb, Fayette, Greene, Hale, Lamar, Perry, Pickens, Sumter, Tuscaloosa, and Walker.
