Possible strong to severe storms Sunday afternoon; - WBRC FOX6 News - Birmingham, AL

A line of strong storms is still on track to move through the Mid-South Wednesday evening bringing the threat for severe weather. Still a little too early to determine the magnitude of the severe weather threat and it will be interesting to watch how the event unfolds to the west this weekend. A few thunderstorms may linger into Monday.

The heat index, or "feels like" temperature, may reach the mid to upper 90s on Friday. Large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes may occur with any storms that become severe.

After midnight, a secondary line of storms develop along a cold front.

The rest of the region is in a SLIGHT RISK for severe storms. The chance of widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely; however, a few storms could contain gusty winds, hail, and brief heavy downpours. Friday night will be a very warm and muggy night with lows in the low to mid 70s.

At this time heavy downpours are to greet us early Saturday then thin in coverage and intensity as the front moves slowly north by Saturday afternoon.

Chances for rain in central Oklahoma continue through Saturday night. We do this all over again over the weekend - although trends in the computer models have the heaviest rain completely missing our area (and state entirely). The Storm Prediction Center has placed the region in it's Marginal Risk category for severe weather, the lowest risk category for determining severe weather threat. Although thunderstorms are expected to miss Tuscaloosa on Saturday, they will likely still hit Birmingham and most of Alabama. No matter where you are, we're always watching and always tracking!
