SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Severe weather is projected to impact the the majority of the state beginning tonight.

The National Weather Service has updated its forecast for the night.

“Confidence continues to increase this morning regarding the potential for severe storms starting as early as this afternoon and lasting through early Tuesday morning,” The NWS posted on Facebook. “Severe storms will be possible across all of Central Alabama, so make sure you have your severe weather plan of action ready to go in case a warning is issued for your location.” 

All types of severe weather will be possible – including tornadoes, damaging straight-line winds with gusts 60 to 70 mph, and large hail. Localized flooding will also be possible due to torrential rainfall in low-lying areas and ponding of water on roadways will be likely.
