Tornadoes, hail and flash flooding possible


More storms are expected to hit Alabama on Friday, according to the National Weather Service, and they could come in multiple waves.

Friday’s storms could bring the threat of tornadoes, damaging winds and hail. Heavy rains will also be a problem, and some parts of the state are at risk of flash flooding.

The weather service said during a morning forecast discussion that “conditions appear increasingly favorable for a number of severe weather events late this week, with details to be worked out in upcoming forecast cycles.”

NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center has added a level 2 out of 5 risk for severe weather for West Alabama for Friday. A level 2 risk means isolated severe storms are possible (see the forecast at the top of this post).

The rest of Alabama is at a Level 1 risk on Friday and isolated severe storms are possible.

The National Weather Service said a wave of rain and storms will pass through during the day on Friday, and another overnight.

Forecasters added that heavy rainfall will be possible, especially in the southern half of the state.

The weather service said parts of south Alabama could get 4 to 6 inches of rain Friday morning through Saturday evening:

Here is the forecast for rain from 1am Friday through Saturday night. Some areas in southern Alabama can get 4 to 6 inches.

Once this weather system moves out on Saturday, forecasters say drier and calmer weather is expected for the first part of next week.
