Severe Weather Material

As you are aware, here in north Alabama we have experienced strong to severe weather events periodically. On this web page we have some links to key locations on the intetnet to get severe weather updates. Each link will open in a new tab of your browser.

This link goes to the Storm Prediction Centers Severe Weather Outlook page. Day 1 is "today" and in the upper right you can click forward to day 2, etc.

This link takes you to the explanation of what those color codes mean on the SPC's Severe Weather Outlook page. Note that the colors and categories mean different things for the various days covered by the Forecast.

Last but not least, this link takes you to the Huntsville office of the National Weather Service with their Forecast for the weather of the day. Scroll down about half way and on the right you'll see a link to the Hazardous Weather Outlook. If you go there you'll find a text discussion of the forecast for the next day. The last section is titled "Spotter Call to Action Statement". I pay attention to that because if the NWS really thinks it's going to get bad, they'll notify Spotters there that they should be ready to Go.
