Severe storms moving through Marion and Lamar Counties

Posted: Updated:

A line of sting and severe storms is moving through Marion and Lamar counties. This weather system could producer tornadoes, flooding, hail and damaging winds.  The rest of the line extends back into Mississippi, but will soon be in Alabama.  Damaging straight line winds continue to be the biggest threat. Some winds up to 60 mph have already been reported in MS. The ABC 33/40 Weather Team is watching for rotation as the tornado threat is there, but it is low.

Tornado watches have been issued around most of the state.  One watch set to expire at 1 a.m. Friday includes Bibb, Dallas, Tuscaloosa Counties and others. Another watch set to expire at 3 a.m. includes Cullman, Etowah, Jefferson, Limestone and Montgomery counties, among others.  

A wind advisory throughout most of the state is expected to expire around midnight. Forecasters predict sustained winds of 20-25 mph, with the possibility of gusts up to 35 mph.
