The National Weather Service is forecasting a dangerous severe weather situation for Tuesday Evening.  The system is expected to start affecting SW Alabama in the late afternoon and move East of I-65 around midnight.  The storms in this system will be moving very fast (possibly as fast as 60mph), so there will be little time to take shelter when a warning is issued.

The primary threats from these storms are large hail (golf ball or larger), high winds (70+ mph), and STRONG, LONG-TRACK TORNADOES. 

Make sure you have multiple means of receiving warnings, especially something that will wake you in the night, such as a NOAA Weather Alert Radio.
