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

.DAY ONE...Tonight...

A probability for widespread hazardous weather is low.

Isolated thunderstorms are expected to move across far northwest
Alabama late tonight, as a potent upper level storm system and its
associated cold front moves towards the region.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday...

Scattered thunderstorms are expected to move across northwest Alabama
Thursday morning. These storms are expected to diminish in coverage
and intensity during the morning as they progress eastward. Gusty
winds are the main threat posed by these storms.

Thunderstorm development east of the Mississippi River early
Thursday afternoon will advance eastward, reaching northwestern
Alabama in the late afternoon and early evening. These storms could
become severe, with damaging wind gusts over 60 mph, very large hail,
and a few tornadoes. Some of the tornadoes that affect northwest
Alabama could become strong.

A threat of severe weather will advance eastward Thursday evening,
with damaging winds, large hail, and tornadoes all possible. The
threat of severe weather will somewhat diminish later Thursday
evening, however damaging winds and large hail will still be
possible. A threat for severe weather will diminish from the west to
east by early Friday morning with the passage of the cold front.

Along with severe thunderstorms, locally heavy rainfall ranging from
one to two inches could lead to ponding of water in low spots, flash
flooding, and rises in stream and river levels.

Scattered to numerous thunderstorms are again possible Monday and
Tuesday, as another storm system approaches the area from the west.


Activation of storm spotters and emergency management personnel will
be likely Thursday afternoon and evening.
