Damaging winds and large hail will be possible through 9 p.m. this evening. The greatest threat will be damaging winds and hail, although an isolated tornado can not be ruled out either. The wind advisory is in effect from noon through 10 p.m. for sustained winds up to 25 miles per hour with gusts from 40 to 45 miles per hour. That means storms will likely be strongest in Northwest Alabama as they arrive, then weaken as the line moves east from 7PM-2AM.

There may be several locations and wide-spread strong to severe storms until a cold front sweeps the state later tonight.

Frost will be possible Wednesday night into Thursday morning and again Saturday night into Sunday. "High temperatures will be in the lower 80s".

A warming trend will begin late Thursday into Friday with southerly winds returning.


Behind the cold front, temperatures take a 20 degree dive down to the upper 50s for highs Wednesday afternoon.

Look for moderate to heavy rain Tuesday morning with the chance for thunder. Showers and thunderstorms will become more widespread as this cooler air interacts with the warm, moist air in place around the area. No severe weather is expected with this system. Lows will fall into the mid 30s.

Rain should exit by mid Wednesday afternoon, followed by more windy conditions and falling temperatures through the remainder of the day.

"Sometimes we have those creeks that flood the road for a couple hundred feet long and a few inches deep that you have to watch", Luebbe said.
