Severe Threat Through Afternoon In South Alabama

By Jim Stefkovich, Meteorologist, Alabama Emergency Management Agency

CLANTON – Tuesday, 11:30 am November 21, 2023

The threat of severe weather throughout the afternoon will be east of I-65 and south of I-85.  The good news is that rain and cloud covers have continued to keep instability at low levels.  The more unstable the atmosphere is, the more likely thunderstorms can increase in intensity once they form.

As such, widespread severe weather will not occur, but there could still be a few damaging wind gusts and one or two tornadoes if instability increases in the southeastern sections.

The threat of severe storms will end by 6 pm.  An updated timing graphic is provided below.

Non-thunderstorm wind gusts from 15-25 mph will occur through the afternoon across much of the state, and as high as 30 mph in the southeastern sections.
