Two waves of strong to severe thunderstorms will affect the state from the remainder of this afternoon through early Monday morning. The first wave will affect mainly the eastern half of the state through 12 am, with the second wave entering the northern sections of Alabama between 10 pm and 2 am and exiting the southern portions by 9 am.
Damaging winds and hail are the threats.
These storms will likely pack a punch much more than a typical summertime severe storm. If you plan to be outdoors today or tonight, make sure you keep up to date with the latest warnings and get to a sturdy building if issued for your area.
On Monday afternoon, a few storms may develop mainly east of I-65 and a couple of storms could produce damaging wind gusts and hail, but widespread severe weather will not occur.
