Highest Threat (Slower Line): A broken line of strong to severe storms will develop across Central Alabama after midday eastern time.

Outside of thunderstorms, it will be a very windy day with gusts up to 50 mph with related impacts of toppled trees on power lines, of course, loss of power is a higher likelihood.

The tornado threat is still present and the window for the physical line is later and there are breaks in the clouds for additional support or energy that must be considered.

Wind shear is now present, so we are monitoring right now conditions hour by hour for rotation in any storm or non-thunderstorms, which can still produce tornadoes this afternoon.

There’s a small window we are watching for storms before the physical squall line so our coverage will continue to be ready in the studio and web after the noon show until this event is clear.
