From WVUA 23’s Chief Meteorologist Richard Scott:

As new data comes in, parameters have increased, which has increased our severe risk locally for Saturday afternoon and Saturday night. The Storm Prediction Center has placed all of our area in an enhanced risk, Level 3 out of 5 risk.

Timing: The event will begin by early afternoon Saturday and end by 4 a.m. Sunday morning.

What to expect: Supercell storms will likely develop around 3 p.m. Saturday over West Alabama. These will be scattered, so not everyone will be directly impacted. The supercells will be capable of producing tornadoes, large hail and strong wind. These will race northeast. After 9 p.m., a line of storms will move into our area. These storms will be capable of producing damaging winds, hail and isolated tornadoes.

As a reminder, the WVUA23 FastTrack weather team is live during a tornado warning on TV, streaming online at and on WVUA23 Facebook live too.
