Severe weather possible overnight

Saturday forecast Showers arrive later today Saturday forecast Showers arrive later today

Threats: A few tornadoes, large hail and damaging wind gusts will be possible. The northwestern half of the News 5 area has been put under a slight risk for severe storms. Damaging winds and large hail will be the primary threats, but a few tornadoes and even some localized flooding can not be ruled out.

After the main line pushes through, we will still be seeing some rain through the morning.

But the weather service in Birmingham thinks the strong storms will be confined to southern parts of central Alabama for places like Montgomery, Selma, Demopolis, Troy and Eufaula, with no severe risk farther north in places like Birmingham, Anniston and Gadsden.

Have your NOAA Weather Radio programmed with fully-charged batteries available. If you must travel, make sure to check the weather conditions, watches, warnings and advisories before venturing out the door.

Severe weather reaches the East Coast on Saturday. But, that also depends on when and if that little area of lower pressure forms.

The enhanced risk means multiple severe storms are possible, resulting in hail up to 2 inches in diameter and wind speeds of 75 miles per hour or greater.

You can always find extra forecast details, a more in-depth look at the timeline, or a scientific explanation about the setup on Nick's Blog.

Severe Weather Impacts This Evening.

In response to that, the WALB First Alert Weather Team has declared a First Alert Weather Day. Android users can download the app here.
