— Strong thunderstorms could be possible today and Tuesday across North Alabama, according to a severe weather outlook issued by the National Weather Service.
Storms will become more numerous west of Interstate 65 through the rest of today with scattered activity east of I-65 in northeast Alabama and southern middle Tennessee.
A few of the storms may become strong and capable of small hail, frequent lightning and brief gusty winds. An isolated severe storm capable of large hail remains possible, though mainly south of U.S. 72.
Thunderstorm activity will diminish this evening, but a second round of storms will impact the area late tonight as a cold front approaches from the northwest.
On Tuesday, a weak cold front will temporarily stall across the Tennessee Valley before finally pushing southeast on Wednesday morning. Scattered to numerous thunderstorms will be possible during this period with the highest coverage of storms along and to the south and east of the stalled front.
The strongest thunderstorms will once again be capable of producing hail and gusty winds.
