Officials warn of severe thunderstorms Sunday night


North Alabama should brace for high winds, flooding conditions and possible tornadoes Saturday, according to the National Weather Service in Huntsville.

Sunday: A chance of thunderstorms in the morning, then showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Some storms could be severe, with damaging winds and heavy rain. Updated figures at 4 p.m. Friday indicated that over the course of rains parking into Sunday, the area may see 3 to 5 inches fall.

On Friday, the main weather issue was severe weather, which turned out to be isolated.

"Most of these storms are not carrying moisture in them".

"Winds still remain the biggest concern as some stronger storms could produce 40+ miles per hour winds", Prinz said.

Much of the KVOE listening area was under a tornado watch, but that was canceled early with no tornado reports statewide.

The tornado watch is in effect because the thunderstorms expected from the system can produce tornadoes suddenly, sometimes with little or no warning. "The activation is tied to a tornado warning being issued by the National Weather Service".

"It's our opportunity to practice having students be prepared for severe weather if it were to happen, because it's definitely a reality here in Wisconsin", said Patterson.

Unfortunately, the storms did not bring widespread rainfall. "We're expecting a lot more snow than we typically would see in a storm, especially this late in the season, we're getting into April, mid April, here".
