For today, the morning storms have worked over the atmosphere pretty well, so the threat for severe weather is a little less than what it was. The SPC has placed nearly the whole state of Alabama under a SLIGHT RISK for severe weather today. Thunderstorms will begin to pop up after 2pm today, but they will be isolated in coverage. The storms that pop could quickly become strong to severe, as the atmosphere will have recovered enough for that to happen. Strong winds and hail are the main threat, but cannot rule out an isolated tornado or two somewhere in the state today. Doug and I will be at the track and will have our eyes on the radar.
