The latest storm outlook from the Storm Prediction Center shows the Fox 6 viewing area under a marginal risk for strong to severe storms. The slight risk was removed from the southern portion of the viewing area. The area under a slight risk is in yellow and includes Mobile to Auburn and points eastward. An enhanced risk for severe weather exists across far southeast Alabama and across the panhandle of Florida.
TRACKING THE STORMS HOUR BY HOUR:
Current system to our southwest and tracking northeastward which will send rain and storms our way today!
The activity ramps up to the southwest during the early afternoon hours from Aliceville to Eutaw.
Storms, some of which could be strong and produce wind gusts over 40 mph will impact areas along I-65 during the early afternoon hours as well.
Storms continue to march northeastward and will be exiting the Fox 6 viewing area by 5pm.
Again, the worst of the weather is expected from Montgomery and points southward and that's where tornadoes might develop or damaging wind storms.
So all and all, expect a few showers the rest of this morning and then more numerous showers and storms this afternoon, some of which could be strong or severe. The severe threat is low but not zero. Besides a few showers, weather conditions improve tonight if you want to go out and squeeze in some last minute grocery shopping for Thanksgiving.
If anything does develop that's either strong or severe, we'll be sure to update you online and on air if necessary.
Sounds like a perfect day to watch a movie or some football!
