Severe weather will be possible in Alabama for three consecutive days beginning Monday.
All severe weather hazards will be possible, including tornadoes, damaging winds, hail and heavy rain.
Not all states will face the risk of severe storms every day.
Monday’s severe weather forecast from the Storm Prediction Center is above.
It shows a marginal risk of severe storms in southwestern Alabama. A marginal risk corresponds to level 1 of the 5 severe weather risk levels and means that isolated severe thunderstorms will be possible.
The western half of Alabama could also see rain and a few storms, but severe weather is not expected in the rest of the state.
The Mobile National Weather Service said wind gusts up to 60 mph, tornadoes and hail would be possible in its forecast area in southwest Alabama. Its predictions differ slightly from those of the Storm Prediction Center. The weather service is a slight risk, or level 2 out of 5, in all of southwest Alabama:
Mobile forecasters said storms would be possible Monday evening and could last through Tuesday morning. More thunderstorms will be possible Tuesday afternoon.
Speaking of Tuesday, the Storm Prediction Center has all of southern Alabama in a level 2, or mild, risk of severe weather. Almost all of the rest of the state (except part of northern Alabama) is also at marginal risk (Level 1).
Here is Tuesday’s severe weather forecast:
The Weather Service expects a warm front to rise north across the state on Tuesday, bringing warm, moist air and increasing the potential for strong, scattered storms to develop. There will be a broad schedule for storms on Tuesday, but they will most likely occur during afternoon peak hours.
Severe weather is not a sure thing, forecasters said, but if storms form, they could become intense. Heavy rain will also be possible.
More storms will be possible across the state on Wednesday as a strong cold front moves through the state.
Here is Wednesday’s severe weather forecast:
The Storm Prediction Center has all of Alabama at widespread risk of severe weather on Wednesday. Again, all forms of severe weather will be possible, including damaging winds, hail, tornadoes and heavy rain.
The main window for storms appears to be Wednesday afternoon through Wednesday evening.
Several inches of rain will be possible in some areas, which means the weather service will be on guard for flash flooding.
The front will sweep away rain and storms, and drier, cooler weather is expected for Alabama beginning Thursday.
