More storms expected Tuesday

By James-Paul Dice

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The FOX6 StormWarn Center will be watching the weather again Tuesday.  We are expecting a good round of strong to severe storms ahead of a robust cold front. 

While we may see a few storms during the morning hours, I think the best chance of severe weather will occur after 3pm and last into the evening.  The primary threats will be damaging winds, heavy rain, lightning, and isolated tornadoes. 

The highest risk of severe storms will include areas north of I-20 and into the Tennessee Valley. 

The tornado threat should remain minimal thanks to wind shear profiles being a bit less directional.  This means straight-line wind damage will be more likely. 

However, these situations on occasion produce small spin-up tornadoes.

A few showers and storms will continue through Wednesday before temperatures will turn sharply colder behind the front.

Stay tuned for a weather alert through Tuesday night.  The FOX6 StormWarn team will  provide updates on-air, online, and via mobile devices.
