We are Alabama Weather Prediction, a group of SKYWARN certified storm spotters that have one mission in mind: to bring you the latest severe weather information that you want to know about for north and central Alabama.

Outlook

Our Outlook is updated at least once a week, and even more frequently if there is an imminent weather event such as a Tornado or Severe Thunderstorm Watch. Our Outlook is broken down into specific hazards for our coverage area of north and central Alabama. Each number specified for the hazard is a combination of how confident we are in each hazard and how likely the hazard is to occur for a specific area. For more specifics on each number and how the Outlook works, please refer to our Outlook page.

Who We Cover

Our Team is responsible for the counties highlighted in the image below. We are focused on north and central Alabama with a secondary focus on the bordering counties in Mississippi and Tennessee. Each zone is assigned to a specific Team member, as noted in the coverage image below. 

Severe Mode

Severe Mode is our version of "Severe Weather Operations". It is activated on a need-to-be basis. Once activated, there is at least one Team member actively monitoring the weather situation. Severe Mode is most likely to be activated when a Weather Watch is either in place for any of our coverage counties or we anticipate one to be issued shortly. The image at the top of the page indicates our current Severe Mode status. It can be clicked to be taken to our Severe Page, the one-stop source for severe weather for the area. We will cover live events and post links in that channel to make it easier to follow a severe weather event.
