(10:20 PM Radar)
We are continuing to monitor an elevated risk of severe weather for Sunday and Sunday night. Right now the Storm Prediction Center has our area within a Slight Risk Day 2 Convective Outlook. A strong to severe storm can’t be ruled out during the day but the primary risk will be after 10 PM Sunday night and before 7 AM on Monday. Make sure you have a device that can wake you up if a warning is issued before sunrise on Monday. We have some great Weather Apps at http://myfoxal.com/apps. If you have a NOAA Weather Radio, make sure your device has fresh batteries.

THE SETUP: At the time of this update, tornado and severe thunderstorm watch boxes were in effect from Texas to Nebraska. These watches are associated with a large upper level storm system spinning over Oklahoma and associated cold front. The southerly flow out ahead of this system will produce another increase in rain and storms by tomorrow morning, especially across south Alabama. Additional scattered storms could develop in the afternoon and any storm that develops will be capable of growing severe. The atmosphere will become increasingly unstable tomorrow night as temperatures aloft begin to cool. The NAM (North American Model) has been the more robust with generating impressive severe weather parameters through early Monday morning. A squall line may develop and track east producing strong to severe storms. Any severe storm will be capable of producing damaging straight line winds, hail, or a possible tornadoes. Localized flash flooding may also be an issue late Sunday and into the overnight hours. Flash Flood Watches are already in effect across far south Alabama. The severe threat should end by Monday afternoon with cooler-dry conditions returning for Tuesday. In fact, temperatures across the Tennessee Valley may only top out in the 60s by mid-week!
