FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY: Potentially strong-to-severe storms heading into Tennessee Valley

(WAFF) -

FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY

The First Alert Storm Trackers are declaring Monday a First Alert Weather Day due to the threat for strong to severe thunderstorms and flooding rain.  A flash flood watch will go into effect at 6 a.m. Monday morning. It is possible some areas of North Alabama and southern Tennessee will also be under a tornado watch at that time if current forecast trends continue.

This line will move east and enter the middle part of North Alabama between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.  Expect the strong gusty winds, heavy rain and embedded tornado threat to then move into northeast Alabama by the noon hour.

Although strong-to-severe storms are possible throughout the Valley, the storms should become less intense with time, meaning the severe threat is lowest over northeastern Alabama. Locally heavy rain with rainfall totals between 1-2” within one hour could lead to additional flash flooding.
