It just seems like not too long ago we were freezing. Now we are enjoying 70s across Alabama today. Now for the bad news, rain is coming and portions of Alabama are under a severe weather outlook.

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist noted on Facebook that “clouds will return tonight ahead of a cold front, with some rain moving into the northern half of the state after midnight. Rain over North/Central Alabama tomorrow morning will end by midday, but showers and storms will persist into the afternoon over the northern third of the state, generally north of U.S. 278 (Hamilton to Cullman to Gadsden). A few strong storms are possible; SPC maintains a low-end "marginal risk" of severe storms for areas north of a line from Tuscaloosa to Pelham to Piedmont. Heavier storms in the marginal risk area could produce small hail and gusty winds; we are not expecting a tornado threat.”

I agree with James Spann; consider this your spring preview. It’s a great time to remind you of the Severe Weather season, which runs from March until May, with the second season in the Fall. Now would be a great time to get prepared.

As reported earlier this week. Don't forget that this weekend “Alabama will hold its 10th annual Severe Weather Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday.”

We will continue to monitor the severe weather potential for our area. Also, we will closely pay attention to the influx of rain amounts as well.
