This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for the counties served by the
National Weather Service office in Birmingham.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

There is a threat of severe thunderstorms across all of central
Alabama. Timing is still uncertain due to the potential for more
than one round of storms. The threat will begin as early as 1 PM
Sunday in western Central Alabama and could last as late as 10 AM
Monday in far southeast Central Alabama. The threats include damaging
winds, brief tornadoes, and hail. With the moisture content in place
and the potential of multiple rounds of storms, locally heavy
rainfall will also be possible. This means a few inches of rain may
occur in a short period of time, producing some minor flooding.

Strong gusty winds will continue into Sunday. Sustained winds will
be 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph or higher possible. The highest
winds will be observed in the higher elevation areas. These winds
can be expected generally from 10 am until 10 pm Sunday.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday.

No hazardous weather is expected at this time.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Activation of storm spotters and emergency management may be needed
this afternoon and through the overnight hours into tomorrow morning.
