A line of strong to severe storms will move into north Alabama ahead of a cold front Monday. This line of storms will be capable of producing some severe weather.
The main threat these storms will pose is strong straight line winds, although we can’t rule out some isolated flash flooding or a spin up tornado or two. The timing of this line of storms will be from Monday afternoon through Monday night.
The Storm Prediction Center has trimmed back the outlook a little since early Sunday; most of North Alabama is now in the (Level 1) ‘Marginal Risk.’
That indicates a trend toward a less-volatile atmosphere and less support for widespread severe storms. That’s good news, but it’s not the best news. There will still be at least some level of concern for high winds or even a tornado as this weakening line of storms moves into Alabama and Tennessee on Monday.
The bottom line: Strong to severe storms are likely Monday, and you should be prepared for a line of storms that could produce strong winds, heavy rain, and perhaps a couple of spin-up tornadoes.
