Early Morning Storms

The Weather Authority is tracking a second round of showers and storms that will move in effecting your morning commute on Thursday.

Storms look to move into northwest Alabama around 1 a.m. Storms will move southeast through the area while many of you are sleeping. Make sure you have a way to get woken up in the middle of the night. Storms will be moving out of the area after the morning commute.

Thunderstorms will be capable of damaging winds, frequent lightning and torrential rainfall that could lead to localized flooding. Hail and/or a tornado will be possible.

With the multiple rounds of rain we have experienced in previous days, excessive rainfall could lead to impacts for some. 1.5 to 2.5 inches of rain with isolated higher totals may occur. Heavy rain may lead to ponding on the roads or localized flooding. Always remember, if you come across a flooded roadway never drive through it, turn around and find an alternate route. Frequent lightning will also be a threat.

With the second round of storms forecast to move through after dark, make sure you have your tone alerts on so you can get woken up in the middle of the night.
