The severe threat continues into early this evening south of Livingston – Montgomery – Dothan line. Very large hail (baseball size has occurred this afternoon), damaging wind gusts, torrential/flooding rainfall and a couple of tornadoes are all possible.
North of this line isolated to widely scattered storms will develop into early this evening. A couple of storms could produce damaging wind gusts and hail, but widespread severe weather will not occur.
For Friday, models have trended faster with the next wave of storms, entering the western portions of the state tomorrow morning. A few storms with damaging wind gusts and large hail are possible but tornado development is unlikely.
On Saturday, another wave of storms may produce a few damaging wind gusts and large hail during the afternoon and evening hours south of a Tuscaloosa – Montgomery – Troy line.
Yet another wave is likely sometime on Sunday with a severe threat across the northern portions of the state, but confidence is low on exact timing and location.
