MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A powerful cold front will slice into a warm, moist air mass in place over Alabama. The front, the warm air, and favorable upper level winds will create an environment favorable for thunderstorms in our state this afternoon and tonight.

Three main issues: 1. A slow-moving line of storms will slowly push out of Mississippi and into Alabama this afternoon into the evening. Within that line of storms, there will be some stronger cells that are capable of producing damaging wind gusts and/or isolated tornadoes. 2. Ahead of the line, there could possibly be some individual storms that develop. Those could produce brief tornadoes and/or strong wind. 3. The slow-moving line could cause some isolated flooding, especially west of I-65.

Don't forget to keep checking our school closings list! Here are the major districts that have contacted us so far: Montgomery Public Schools, Selma City, Wilcox County, Coosa County, Autauga County, Elmore County, and Tallassee City School Districts will dismiss early.
