Significant Severe Weather Threat Developing

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

A significant severe weather threat is developing today and tonight to our west, and it will have an impact on the Tennessee Valley, Central Alabama and Middle Tennessee. The wave of severe storms will weaken some late tonight as it moves across Interstate 65, but we all have a risk of high winds and even tornadoes tonight and early Sunday morning.
This is a serious event, but it will not impact all of us equally.

Tornadoes are a possibility. We cannot tell you if a tornado will or won’t strike a certain spot 36 hours in advance. That’s why we have the WATCH & WARNING process.

A WATCH means the atmosphere is capable of producing severe storms and/or tornadoes.

A WARNING means a storm is actually producing severe weather NOW or will very soon.

Have a way to get a warning if one is needed for your area. NOAA weather radio is always the go-to, number one way to get the alert, but technology has come a long way in getting those alerts on your mobile device as well.
