Today we’ve been monitoring some violent weather back to our west over Texas. There are reports of considerable damage in the Dallas area because of tornadoes. One tornado was captured on camera tossing large semi-trailers. We’ve included a still image courtesy of CNN and WFAA.
Lots of folks are wondering, how will this system will impact our state?
We expect the main low pressure cell to track well north of Alabama, with the primary setup for our area growing favorable for strong to severe thunderstorms later today and overnight. The main threat for Alabama will be storm types capable of producing large hail, frequent lightning, and damaging straight-line winds. Storms will become more likely throughout the day tomorrow. The back edge of the stormy weather impact the state on Thursday; however, by then we don’t expect much in the form of severe weather. Be sure to join Chief Meteorologist J-P Dice starting at 5:00 PM for the latest.
