Sunday’s ENHANCED Severe Risk – Tornadoes Threat – Special FRIDAY Video

..All Eyes on Weekend Severe Weather Threat…  It should be a warm and relatively quiet today, and much of tomorrow, too.  Any shower activity will be widely scattered.  All attention continues to center on a developing storm system,  which threatens to bring severe weather to Alabama as early as late Saturday night, and across the state Sunday.  There is an ENHANCED risk of tornadoes.  On this video, I’ll bring you up to date on the details.  The timing has changed a bit, and we now have an updated threat level from the Storm Prediction Center.  As if that’s not enough, another storm system later next week could bring more severe weather to the state.  I hope you have a couple of minutes to watch today’s important video.

 

Significant tornado risk Saturday in the states west of Alabama, edging into western Alabama in the pre-dawn hours Sunday.

This gets your attention.  The Local NWS office in Birmingham has decided to place the entire area in an ENHANCED risk for Sunday, begining early Sunday morning through Sunday afternoon.  A stronger Risk of Tornadoes.
