The Storm Prediction Center outlines a risk of some severe storms for the Tennessee Valley region Thursday.  The primary threat from storms tomorrow: strong, gusty winds, frequent lightning, and locally-heavy rainfall.

Convective Outlook – Updated at 8am Thursday morning

What to expect from Thursday’s storms:  The stormy weather moving in Thursday is classic early summertime action: locally-heavy storms with ‘mean-looking’ shelf clouds, wind gusts over 50 miles per hour, heavy rain, and intense, frequent lightning.  Some small hail could accompany the strongest storms, but the air is so warm throughout a large depth of the atmosphere that large hail is not expected.

Track heavy storms with’s Interactive Radar or swipe over to the radar feature on Live Alert 19!

Look for a few isolated showers and even some hit-or-miss thunderstorms as early as 10 AM  to 11 AM; a much broader area of heavy storms moves in from from Tennessee and Mississippi around lunchtime and crosses the entire northern half of Alabama through 7 PM (at the very latest).
