A few severe storms possible on Friday


The Storm Prediction Center outlines a marginal risk of some severe storms for North Alabama and Southern Tennessee on Friday.

Primary threats from Friday’s storms include gusty winds up to 60 MPH, small hail, frequent lightning and heavy rain. The rough stuff won’t get all of us, but if you do happen to find yourself underneath a storm Friday afternoon or evening, be prepared to move indoors quickly!

Timing-wise, the threat of storms is greatest from around noon to 6 PM Friday; after that, cooler and drier air moves in for the Memorial Day Weekend.

Three of the past four days were more like July than May, but cooler air is coming! It could be one of the final shots of cool air this season, though, so enjoy it while you can. A cold front passing Friday evening pushes the threat of storms out of the region leaving us with a dry, quiet and cooler weekend.
