North Alabama Severe Weather Threat Update & Timeline


I know we have a lot of people that follow us outside of the North Alabama area, please refer to earlier Severe Weather post for information. This update is specially for North Alabama.

Timing and duration:

West of I-65: 11 PM – 5 AM

East of I-65: 3 AM – 9 AM

Potential Impacts:

Damaging winds up to 70 mph


Large Hail

Brief flash flooding

The main timeline for North Alabama Severe storms for Saturday night/Sunday should be overnight (beginning around 11 pm) and ending around mid-morning (around 9 am). This will be our main Severe Weather Threat window.

Although, there remains a potential for redevelopment on Sunday afternoon, as the cold front moves through the area, the timing and severity of those storms remains uncertain. The greatest threat from the Sunday afternoon line should only be hail and damaging winds.
