Severe Weather Possible / 4-11-2013

Geek Alabama Weather Alert

Today could be the biggest severe weather day for the Spring severe weather season.  A powerful cold front will come through Alabama later today.  Ahead of the cold front is a line of strong thunderstorms that have already produced damaging winds and tornadoes.  Here is the day 1 outlooks from the SPC.


Weather conditions will begin to deteriorate heading into the afternoon.  Daytime heating from the sun popping out will begin to cause a greater chance for severe thunderstorms into the afternoon and evening hours.  Several supercell thunderstorms could develop ahead of the squall line and these supercell storms could cause tornadoes.  The squall line could have damaging winds and tornadoes.  Also a threat of heavy rain could cause some flooding.

The main threats will begin after 3 pm for NE Alabama / NW Georgia.  Damaging winds and tornadoes are possible.  Look for a tornado watch to be issued later today.  Stay close to a source of weather information like your smart phone or weather radio to keep up to date of any warnings.  Today will be nothing like the April 27th tornado outbreak.  But it only takes one tornado going down your neighborhood to make it your April 27th!  Once the cold front comes through, Friday and the weekend will be picture perfect!  Here is a map on what to expect today.  Stay weather alert!
