A line of potentially severe storms are expected to hit Cullman County within the hour and could last until midnight, Emergency Management Agency officials said.
Cullman County EMA director Phyllis Little said they will continue to monitor the weather especially to the West of the area.
“The highest threat is for wind with the thunderstorms that will be ahead of the front moving through and it can do some damage,” Little said. “We could lose some trees during the wind issues, and there’s always the possibility of power outages when that occurs.”
Little said they are not expecting to have a large outbreak of tornadic weather, but with the quick temperature changes they will be ready for the possibility.
“We are asking to people to monitor the weather, have their weather radio’s ready for updates,” Little said. “The weather sources are expecting to include us in a watch around 6 p.m. or so. We should watch this like any other spring time storm that comes through.”
