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

.DAY ONE...Outlook Through Tonight.

Scattered severe storms are possible across all of Central Alabama
this afternoon, ahead of an approaching front. The primary threats
with these storms are damaging winds, large hail, and tornadoes.

A more significant threat of severe storms, including strong
tornadoes, is expected late this afternoon and tonight as a front
moves through the area. These storms will move from west to east,
entering northwest Central Alabama as early as 4PM and exiting
southeast Central Alabama as late as 2AM Tuesday morning. The
greatest potential for strong tornadoes is north of a line from
Sulligent to Birmingham to Anniston. However, tornadoes, large hail,
and damaging winds are possible area wide.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday.

Cooler air moving in behind the system will result in the potential
for lows at or below freezing across parts of north central Alabama
Wednesday night into Thursday morning.


Activation of storm spotters and emergency management will be
needed through early Tuesday morning.
