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 marginal risk of severe storms across southern portions of
Central Alabama today, mainly between noon and 8 PM. This will be for
areas along and south of a Livingston to Wetumpka to Phenix City
line. The main threats will be isolated damaging wind gusts and hail
up to quarter size.

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

Severe storms are likely across Central Alabama on Monday, mainly
between 3PM and 11PM. There is an enhanced risk of large to very
large hail, tornadoes, and damaging winds along and north of a
Geiger to Wetumpka to Phenix City line. There is a slight risk of
large hail and damaging winds south of this line, with a tornado
also possible there as well. The relatively greatest risk for a
tornado appears to be across the northern and especially northeast
counties of Central Alabama.

Cooler air moving in behind the system will result in the potential
for lows at or below freezing across far northern portions of
Central Alabama Wednesday night.


Activation of storm spotters and emergency management may be needed
this afternoon and evening, and will likely be needed Monday
afternoon and evening.
