Issued: 5:38 am CDT, Tuesday, August 29, 2017
Affected Counties: Cullman, Morgan, Marshall, Lauderdale, Lawrence, Limestone, Madison and other locations across northern Alabama and portions of southern middle Tennessee.

Today and Tonight

Isolated thunderstorms will be possible for the entire outlook area beginning late this evening, as a moist tropical airmass begins to return to the region. Brief wind gusts up to 30 mph and lightning will be the main hazards with this activity.


Wednesday through Monday

Several episodes of showers and embedded thunderstorms are expected during the period from Wednesday through Saturday, as Tropical Cyclone Harvey moves northeastward into the lower Ohio River Valley.

Although brief gusty winds and lightning will be the main threats with the majority of the storms, conditions will be favorable for the development of brief tornadoes from Thursday night through Friday night. Locally heavy rainfall may eventually result in a concern for flooding across portions of the outlook area as well.

Although widespread showers and storms will likely end during the day on Saturday, a lingering warm and humid airmass will lead to a few scattered storms on Sunday and Monday.
