Alabama Skies: A few more storms are on the way Tuesday. Another severe weather event is possible later this week. Plus, snow in the forecast?

Published 9:08 pm Monday, January 8, 2024

Some of us will have a few more hours to deal with some potentially rough weather early Tuesday and Tuesday morning before we dry out with cooler temperatures and strong, gusty winds. Once we get this strong cold front out of the way, we’re already looking ahead at the potential for another severe weather event in just a few days.

Our cold front brought some much-needed rainfall with a few flooding problems, plus tornado warnings, power outages, and hail. We’ll have some more power outages possible as the entire state will have strong, gusty winds Tuesday with wind gusts up to 40 miles per hour.

These are gradient winds and are possible away from showers or storms.

After we dry out a couple days, we’re watching our next system coming into the region Thursday night or Friday. The Storm Prediction Center has already placed much of the state under a Level 2 risk.
