If you’re in northern Alabama, get ready for a beautiful day Monday! Skies will be partly cloudy with northern breezes and cooler temperatures. Unfortunately, the rest of the state has another severe risk, especially the farther south one goes in the state.

The National Weather Service has placed a large majority of the state under a Level 1 risk. This zone stretches from Hamilton to Gadsden all the way to so nearly the Gulf Coast. Other cities include Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Alexander City, Anniston, Clanton, Demopolis, Selma, Montgomery, Auburn, Troy, Greenville, and Eufaula. Damaging winds up to 60 miles per hour and large hail are possible, especially between 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.

A Level 2 risk covers the rest of southern Alabama and the Gulf Coast. Cities in this zone include Butler, Camden, Grove Hill, Burnt Corn, Andalusia, Mobile, Foley, and Gulf Shores. The risks for this zone include frequent lightning, hail, damaging winds, and torrential rain. Timing for the strongest storms is from 1 p.m. until 7 p.m.
