Widespread severe weather likely once again Thursday

A potential severe weather outbreak is forecast across the South

Main threats with any storms on Thursday will be damaging winds and heavy rain, but an isolated tornado can't be ruled out.

We finally clear out next week, but we will also be cooling down into the low 70's.

New this morning, a large portion of North Alabama has been upgraded to a Widespread Risk for severe weather Thursday. Nevertheless, some strong to severe storms are still possible early Friday morning, so pay close attention to the forecast over the next couple of days, and we'll keep you posted on any changes.

Storm Prediction Center's severe weather outlook for Thursday into Thursday night
First Alert Forecast (3/24AM)

Spring has sprung and Louisville faces its first potential severe weather event of the season starting Thursday. Where the warm front lands is still in question. A windy southerly wind at 15-25 miles per hour, gusting up to 40 miles per hour will keep a steady flow of warm & moist air around that will help to fuel up the storms. Supercells capable of producing strong, long-track tornadoes will be possible tomorrow afternoon lasting through early evening.

"All of this would support damaging winds, larger hail and tornadoes, some of which could be strong", wrote the National Weather Service in Jackson, Miss. The South is even more vulnerable, research shows. Right now it looks like the greatest threat for severe weather will be just off to our northwest, but we will be watching radar closely. Into the evening and overnight is where we can expect an uptick in rain chances as we await the arrival of a cold front that will bring us several chances at some heavy rain this week. Our weather team has been preparing for this special for the past few weeks. More showers and thunderstorms take over on Thursday.

The specific timing on these storms is still too early to know, but computer model guidance suggests multiple rounds of storms possible during the day Thursday and into that night.
