This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for north Alabama and portions of
southern middle Tennessee.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight...

A strong cold front will move across the region this afternoon and
evening, accompanied by a fast moving band of numerous showers and
scattered thunderstorms. Some of these storms could become strong to
severe in intensity, with damaging wind gusts to 60 MPH the primary
impact. A brief spin-up tornado cannot be ruled out within the
heavier showers and/or stronger storms. Tornado formation is possible
over Southern Middle Tennessee, and portions of Northwest and North
Central Alabama - mainly north of the Tennessee River and west of the
Interstate 65 corridor.

Outside of any heavier shower and thunderstorm activity, sustained
southerly winds will increase to between 20 and 25 MPH, with gusts
up to 35 to 40 MPH, especially in the higher terrain locations of
Northeastern Alabama and Southern Middle Tennessee. As the front
shifts across the region late this afternoon and early evening, winds
will become westerly in the evening. Please consult the Wind
Advisory that is in effect for more information.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday...

The probability for widespread hazardous weather is low.

Conditions will be favorable for a hard freeze Monday morning, with
lows forecast to reach the mid to upper 20s.


Activation of storm spotters and emergency management personnel may
be requested for the afternoon and early evening.
