Wind, rain and storm overnight

THIS IS WVTM 13. WEATHER WVTM 13 LIVE DOPPLER. SOME SERIOUS THUNDERSTORMS CREATE IN JEFFERSON BIBB TUSCALOOSA WALKER AND CULLMAN COUNTIES. THE THUNDER WILL BE EXTREMELY LOUD HERE BECAUSE OF THE INVERSION LAYER. THE FACT THAT IT IS LOW COOLED AND TOP HEATED. WHEN THESE LIGHTNING STRIKES HAPPEN THE THUNDER WILL ROLL AWAY FOR miles. THE RAIN IS QUITE HEAVY HERE ALSO. IN JEFFERSON COUNTY. UP WALKER COUNTY TOWARDS SMITH LAKE AND CULLMAN COUNTY AND TOWARDS GOOD HOPE IN THE TOWN OF COLEMAN. SAME HERE, RED TUSCALOOSA MOVES NORTHEAST TOWARD OAK GROVE, BESSEMER HOOVER UP INTO HOMEWOOD AND THEN ALSO AROUND HELENA AND PELHAM. AND GOING SOUTH IT’S MUCH HEAVY. DIFFICULT WEATHER THAT OCCURS OVER LOUISIANA IN THIS BATCH OF THUNDERSTORMS OVER CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI WILL BE MAINLY DIRECTED TO SOUTHWEST ALABAMA WHERE I THINK THE MAIN RISK OF DIFFICULT WEATHER WILL BE. BUT WE WILL ALL GET SOME STRONG GUSTS. WE ALREADY HAVE THEM HERE ON RED MOUNTAIN IN BIRMINGHAM. BUT IT’S NOT THAT BAD DOWN IN THE VALLEY. WE THINK THE WIND WILL BE AS HIGH AS 40 TO 50 BUSTS ON AVERAGE, WITH SOME LOCATIONS AT THE HIGHER ALTITUDE ABOVE ABOUT 12 TO 1500 FEET IN ALTITUDE. YOU COULD GET 60 MPH WIND BUSTS. THE PRIMARY SERIOUS WEATHER THREAT TO THE SOUTH. AND WITH SOME OF THIS LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN, SOME COMMUNITIES COULD EXCEED RAINFALLS OF ONE INCH. ALTHOUGH MOST OF US CAN GET ONLY A BIT SHORT. SO FROM NOW UNTIL ABOUT 3:00 A.M. TOMORROW WE HAVE BUILT UP THIS LARGE BAND OF RAIN AND WIND OVER WEST ALABAMA WHICH MOVES INTO THE BIRMINGHAM COLEMAN ONEONTA AREA FROM 2:00 A.M. TOMORROW THROUGH CENTERVILLE AND DOWN TOWARDS CHILTON COUNTY UNTIL APPROX. 6:00 AM TOMORROW. THIS WILL SHIFT EAST. AND WHILE YES, THERE IS A LIMITED HAZARD FROM A SERIOUS THUNDERSTORM, IT WOULD BE MAINLY SOUTH OF US 80, FROM DEMOPOLIS TO SELMA DOWN TO MONTGOMERY TOWARDS THE ALABAMA GULF COAST. SO THE WEATHER WILL HAPPEN TODAY NIGHT AND TOMORROW TOMORROW. TOMORROW AFTERNOON, IT’S ONLY A COOL BREEZE AND WEDNESDAY IT’S STILL TO STORM. A WIND WARNING WILL APPLY ALL WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON. SO HERE’S HOW IT LOOKS. 11:00 PM WILL HAVE WIDESPREAD, GUSTY WINDS, AS WELL AS SOME LOCAL HEAVY RAINFALL. AND THIS WILL ONLY GO ON THROUGH THE NIGHT. AND IN TIME THE WIND WILL REALLY RISE, POTENTIALLY WITH PULLS AT OR ABOVE 50 MPH. As soon as the rain subsides tomorrow morning, we will see a brighter afternoon with gradually decreasing clouds. BUT THE OVERALL PICTURE IS A STORMY, WET START TO THE DAY. WATCH OUT FOR POWER OUTAGES TODAY. IN SOME COMMUNITIES THEY MAY BE WITHOUT POWER FOR SEVERAL HOURS. COOL THURSDAY AND FRIDAY. th
