First Alert Weather Day: Severe weather risk this morning and afternoon

Severe weather is possible tonight as a line of storms makes its way through our northern areas, and a couple isolated storms are possible in the south. "We could have strong damaging winds, maybe some large hail".

Hundreds of schools, Covid-19 vaccination clinics, businesses and more shut down across the Deep South on Wednesday as forecasters warned of waves of severe weather including massive tornadoes, downpours and hail the size of tennis balls. These storms will be capable of producing damaging winds, large hail, as well as tornadoes. This will be the most unsafe part of the outbreak, the center said, as these storms typically have the greatest potential to produce long-track, intense tornadoes.

The Alabama Emergency Management Agency warned the storms could be a "dangerous and life-threatening event".

The worst of the severe weather will begin early in the afternoon on Wednesday or evening and overnight into Thursday morning. "I will continue keeping a close eye on the system and encourage every Alabamian to do the same".

In Jackson, Tennessee, officials said a civic center and the regional airport would be open for residents seeking shelter.
