Warning Issue Date: 1027 PM CST Sat Feb 24 2018 Warning Expiration: 1130 GMT 25 2018
This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for north Alabama and portions of
southern middle Tennessee.
.DAY ONE...Remainder of tonight...
Strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible overnight, as a cold
front pushes southeastward across the outlook area. The main threats
with the storms will be damaging winds in the 60 to 70 mph range and
brief tornadoes. Both the coverage and intensity of thunderstorms is
expected to diminish as the cold front reaches northeast Alabama
closer to sunrise.
Aside from hazards associated with thunderstorms, strong southwest
winds will persist ahead of the cold front through the early morning
hours on Sunday. Both sustained wind speeds and gusts will approach
Wind Advisory criteria along the Cumberland Plateau in southern
Tennessee. Persistent moderate to locally heavy rainfall may also
lead to minor flooding early Sunday morning.
.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday...
Isolated thunderstorms will be possible after sunrise on Sunday to
the east of a line from Scottsboro to Cullman.
Another round of numerous showers and isolated thunderstorms is
expected beginning on Tuesday night and perhaps lingering through
Thursday. This system has the potential to bring locally heavy and
perhaps even flooding rainfall to the region.
.SPOTTER CALL TO ACTION STATEMENT...
Activation of storm spotters and emergency management personnel is
possible through early Sunday morning.
