Alabama Skies: Warmer weather comes with a price as next round of tornado potential comes into the forecast

Published 1:30 am Tuesday, March 21, 2023

We’ll have another gorgeous day across the state today with warmer temperatures and a nice breeze. A few clouds will show up in parts of Alabama today and tonight but we don’t have any rain chances until later.

We are beginning to watch the potential for some severe weather later this week. The Storm Prediction Center has already placed most of the state under a Level 2 risk for tornadoes and severe storms Friday night and early Saturday. A Level 1 risk covers southeastern Alabama with a rough line between Auburn and Troy splitting the Level 1 and Level 2 risks.
