Severe Thunderstorm Warnings in North Alabama will expire as storms move out by 12:30 PM; however, a few additional storms could be severe this afternoon and evening mainly south of the Tennessee Valley across Central Alabama.

The Severe Prediction Center has a *MARGINAL* Risk of severe weather outlined for north Alabama and south Tennessee for our morning round of storms.
The SPC defines Marginal Risk as “an area of severe storms of either limited organization and longevity, or very low coverage and marginal intensity.” In other words, isolated severe storms are possible, but they will be limited in duration, coverage, and/or intensity.
If a thunderstorm moves in on you this weekend, there’s a chance the wind could gust over 35 MPH. It may also bring very heavy rain and intense lightning. Be alert!
