Alabama Skies: More severe weather possible in some Alabama communities Thursday

Published 10:17 pm Wednesday, June 14, 2023

If it wasn’t so hot, one would’ve thought Wednesday was a March day in Alabama based on the rough weather! There were multiple reports of damage across the state and the National Weather Service will begin surveying damage to confirm possible tornadoes.

There’s a chance for some more severe weather Thursday and Friday, but we’re not expecting anything as rocky as Wednesday. We’ll return to a pattern similar to what we had earlier in the week where most of us stay dry, some will get some rain, and a few will have a strong to severe storm.

A Level 1 risk includes Demopolis, Selma, Montgomery, Troy, Eufaula, Butler, Camden, Grove Hill, and Greenville. Possible risks are damaging winds and large hail with heavy rainfall.

A Level 2 covers all areas south of the Level 1 including the Gulf Coast. Tornadoes are possible, along with severe storms, large hail, damaging winds, and heavy rainfall.

Both risks are mainly in the afternoon and evening Thursday.

North Alabama

Partly sunny with scattered showers and storms. High of 84. Partly cloudy Thursday night with a low of 65.

Central Alabama

Mostly cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms. High of 84. Partly cloudy overnight with a slight chance of a lingering shower or storm. Low of 66.

South Alabama

Showers and thunderstorms. A storm or two could be severe. High of 84. Partly cloudy Thursday night with a few remaining showers and storms. Low of 66.

Gulf Coast

Showers and thunderstorms with some storms possibly severe. High of 88. Mostly cloudy overnight with a few remaining showers and storms. Low of 72.
