Published 9:51pm Monday, April 28, 2014

The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla,, has placed much of Alabama in a moderate risk of severe weather Tuesday.

Hartselle City Schools will dismiss classes Tuesday at noon due to the continued threat of severe weather. Morgan County Schools cancelled  Tuesday classes.

The following is an advisory from the National Weather Service:

“A final round of thunderstorms is expected to develop across the central Tennessee Valley today as a cold front finally pushes eastward. Storms will likely develop by early afternoon across northwest Alabama and expand in coverage as the cold front moves eastward through the evening. Atmospheric conditions do not appear as conducive for strong to violent tornadoes today as they were on Monday. However, an unstable environment will exist this afternoon and evening, which will support a risk of strong to severe thunderstorms. Large hail and flash flooding will be the primary threats, although tornadoes and damaging winds will still be possible.”
