Storms threaten people across Alabama

JASPER, AL (WBRC) - Severe thunderstorms threatened people across Alabama on Tuesday, sparking numerous tornado warnings.

The most dangerous weather occurred in north Alabama. Numerous people reported seeing a funnel cloud move across the Huntsville area. No damage nor injuries were initially reported with that storm.

Several other thunderstorms also caused meteorologists at the National Weather Service to issue tornado warnings Tuesday afternoon. The storms created heavy rain, gusty winds and lightning, but no damage was initially reported.

The storms were associated with a storm system that produced severe weather from Alabama to the Ohio Valley. FOX6 Meteorologist J-P Dice said cooler, drier air would begin to arrive in Alabama on Wednesday as the storms moved off to the east.
