BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -
A line of severe storms may enter west Alabama counties as early as 7 p.m. or 8 p.m. Thursday, according to the latest weather models.
Highs on Thursday will reach the mid 70s, but things will quickly change tonight as the cold front approaches.
A strong line of storms will likely impact the I-65 corridor around midnight Thursday and be in east Alabama around 1:30 a.m. Friday. The severe weather should be out of the state by 5:30 a.m. or 6 a.m.
The Storm Prediction Center says there is a 5 percent chance of tornadoes with this system, but the primary threat is still damaging winds which could reach speeds over 60 mph. Strong winds could bring down trees and cause power outages.
FOX6 Chief Meteorologist J-P Dice says the greatest tornado risk will be for areas closer to the Alabama/Mississippi state line and west of I-65. The storms are expected to weaken as they move east.
By late Friday morning, clouds should clear rapidly, leading into a beautiful Friday afternoon and weekend with partly to cloudy skies.
