Alabama Skies: A few more storms Wednesday, but is there a severe threat?

Published 9:23 pm Tuesday, June 20, 2023

For the first time in several days, we finally have a day without a formal severe weather risk from the Storm Prediction Center. Although we do have the chance for some storms in Alabama today, we’re shifting from the rare severe outbreak pattern to the normal summertime afternoon storms pattern except for a few remaining showers throughout the day in central Alabama.

With more sunshine across the state, we’ll also be feeling some more humid and steamy air like we usually have in the summer.

We continue watching Tropical Storm Bret, which has strengthened some during its journey in the Atlantic Ocean. It’s still severe days away from becoming a potential threat and some models have it turning north away from the United States mainland. We’ll keep watching until we know for sure it heads out to sea.

Tropical Storm Bret latest:

  • Location: 12.4 North, 49.5 West
  • Max sustained winds: 45 miles per hour
  • Movement: West at 21 miles per hour
  • Min Central Pressure: 1006 MB
