Severe weather possible in Alabama today; tornado watch issued

The largest threat is tornadoes and damaging winds up to 60 miles per hour, Owen said, noting that Walker County was under an enhanced threat area, as was most of the office's service area from the MS border to a line from Gadsden going south.

Rain and storms are making for a stormy morning in parts of north Alabama, but it may be a good thing when all is said and done.

The immediate forecast does not include the spring and summertime hazard, but rather a significant winter storm expected to arrive Friday afternoon.

The National Weather Service issued at 2:20 p.m., a tornado watch in effect until 9 p.m. for Nodaway County. Forecasters said they expect to be able to narrow the time line today.

"It's mid-April. We're supposed to be transitioning out of this", Borghoff said, echoing the weariness of every other Minnesotan. Palmer said computer guidance indicates most areas will get one to two inches of rain, with some areas being hit with as much as four inches.

"For your area, the timing is a little uncertain overall", he said. However, the threat of strong to severe thunderstorms could continue as a line of storms will continue to develop along a cold front. But with showers on Sunday, the county could cool back down again for snow.

The colder air will be evident Monday.

A freeze is most likely Sunday morning, including the Lubbock area.

Tuesday is expected to bring a high temperature in the high 60s, with mild weather for the rest of week.

Wednesday: Partly sunny, with a high near 51.
