Small risk of severe weather in AL

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Forecasters say there's a small risk of severe weather in Alabama today.

A storm system moving eastward out of Mississippi will mean a threat of strong storms beginning in central Alabama starting around nightfall. The National Weather Service says chances are greatest northwest of a line extending roughly from Selma to Anniston.

The National Weather Service says there's a low risk for tornadoes, flooding and hail, but there's a moderate chance for damaging winds. A wind advisory will be in effect from noon today until midnight across most of the state. Forecasters project sustained winds of 20-25 mph, with the possibility of gusts up to 35 mph.

Forecasters say chances for severe weather are lower in the Tennessee Valley and across south Alabama.
