BIRMINGHAM - Rain/thunderstorms are back in the forecast for tomorrow afternoon-Wednesday morning. Conditions will be more favorable for severe storms over Mississippi. Nonetheless, storms will pose a risk as they enter west-central AL. The threat is expected to decrease with eastward extent heading into Wednesday morning.
Risks include tornadoes, damaging winds to 70 mph, and hail up to ping pong ball size.
Calhoun, Cherokee, DeKalb, and Etowah counties are in the marginal threat area, with storms coming in around 7 pm Tuesday evening into 6 am Wednesday morning.
With our first and only severe risk of November expected to arrive tomorrow, it's important that you haven't let your guard down. Make sure you have multiple ways to receive warnings, replace the batteries in your weather radio if you haven't recently, and double-check that your safe place is clear and ready to go.
