8:44PM: Gusty winds and heavy rain will be likely in the next hour across Escambia and Conecuh counties in Alabama and Escambia and Santa Rosa counties in Florida. A line of decaying thunderstorms is moving in from the west.

Storms are weakening. The severe weather risk is now very low, but a brief gust of strong wind is certainly possible as these storms move through. I’ll be monitoring radar trends closely.

3:56PM: A few late afternoon notes… 1) A line of heavy showers and thunderstorms is about to approach the Alabama/Mississippi state line from the west. This main line of storms has produced a few severe storms that have caused wind damage in portions of Louisiana over the past few hours. I also note that a few storms have popped up out ahead of the main line of storms. These discrete, smaller storms are moving north-northeast. See the attached radar view for more details…

2) The National Weather Service in Mobile indicates a severe weather watch for our region is unlikely, yet still possible. Join me in being “weather ready” over the next few hours.

3) I appreciate the MANY folks who have opted in to our free RedZone Weather Text program. This is the program that allows me to reach you via text message when something happens in the world of weather across our region that you need to know about. Please remember… I don’t send out text alerts due to “run of the mill” thunderstorms. Western portions of the area will likely have some strong storms later. We’ll send out a text if a tornado warning is issued, but otherwise, most likely you won’t hear from me via that method. We’ll be LIVE at rzweather.com on the video and audio streams if we have tornado warnings…

STORMS LATER… 1) The Storm Prediction Center has upped a portion of our area into a Level 2 (out of 5) “slight” risk zone to potentially see a few severe storms this afternoon and this evening. Areas west of a line from Milton to Flomaton to Burnt Corn to Pine Apple are included in this slight risk area. Mobile, Daphne, Gulf Shores, Thomasville, Jackson, Chatom, Monroeville are all included. Areas like Evergreen, Brewton, Crestview and Destin are in the Level 1 “marginal” risk area.

2) Large hail and damaging winds will be possible in the stronger storms that move through later today. The tornado risk remains low.
3) Rain chances will vary quite a bit today from west to east. If you’re in Chatom, Mobile, or Dauphin Island, rain chances are much higher than places like Evergreen, Milligan, or Berrydale. Heavier rain is certainly more likely closer to the Alabama/Mississippi state line.

4) Again, I’m not expecting many (if any) tornado warnings later today across western sections of our coverage area, but if we do have any issued… We’ll be live streaming at rzweather.com. Have a wonderful Saturday!

7:35PM: Quarter size hail and pockets of tree damage have happened in the greater Birmingham area due to severe thunderstorms that moved through. Thanks to pro storm chaser Tommy Self for sending in this picture of a shelf cloud from Tuscaloosa County as the storms moved through a short time ago.

Leading edge of the thunderstorms moving through central Alabama right now. Heavy rain continues in Alabaster, Pelham, Eoline, Chelsea, and Moody at the moment. Pro storm chaser @ala_stormchaser caught this image… Thanks for sharing!

2:44PM: Today has ended up being dry so far across south Alabama and northwest Florida. This morning, we advertised a 40% chance of rain across the region, but at this point I’m confident in lowering that chance to approximately 20% for the rest of the day. Most folks stay dry over the next several hours across the southern third of the state.

A line of strong to severe storms is about to move into northwest Alabama. We note there is a tornado warning in effect for portions of a few north Mississippi counties at the moment. A few severe storms could happen over the northern half of Alabama as this mesoscale convective system continues pushing eastward, yet the tornado risk today is low across the region.
