Severe Weather Saturday

Weather

The entire Tennessee Valley is under a slight risk for severe weather Saturday afternoon through Saturday evening. All modes of severe weather including tornadoes are possible.

This latest round of severe weather comes from a large upper-level low that will still be sitting well to our west as late as Friday evening. As this system moves east it will create a dynamic setup with all of the necessary ingredients for severe weather.

This looks to be an afternoon/evening event across the Tennessee Valley with the main line getting into NW AL around the lunch hour and exiting NE AL by around 8:00 PM. This timing could change as the models continue to come into agreement.

The primary concerns with this storm will be damaging winds and tornadoes. A couple of those tornadoes could be very strong.

As always, make sure you know the difference between a watch and a warning.

Outside the Severe Threat

Outside of the threat for severe weather will be the incredibly windy conditions that will set up across the Tennessee Valley. A Wind Advisory will go into effect at 12:00 AM Saturday and run through the evening.

Again, these are wind gusts outside of the severe weather threat. Through the afternoon, wind gusts could exceed 40 mph.
