Alabama Skies: More stormy weather possible with boomerang temperatures across the state

Published 8:37 pm Saturday, December 9, 2023

A few more storms could be strong to severe in Alabama before we get rid of the strong cold front moving through.

The Storm Prediction Center has a Level 2 risk roughly north of the I-59 corridor. Severe storms, hail, damaging wind, and a tornado or two are all possible in the Level 2 risk until around 1 a.m. or so.

A Level 1 risk covers the rest of the state until storms move out by 8 a.m. The Level 1 includes the same modes of severe weather without as much confident.

Sunday will also be a day of boomerang temperatures. We’ll go from very warm, humid weather to very cool, dry weather within a few hours. Temperatures will fall into the 40s to around 50 by late afternoon across most of the state. We’ll also have freezing temps across Alabama almost to the Gulf Coast.
