Severe weather safety 2 statewide tornado drills scheduled for Thursday April 12

The cold front will move across the midlands Sunday during the early afternoon, bringing possible thunderstorms and other severe weather. The historical average for a full year is 12.23 inches. Some also have been reported to the service's national Storm Prediction Center.

"And it's Alabama and it's April, so we can't rule out the possibility of a tornado".

However, twisters can occur anytime, anywhere. There is also a special marine warning in effect through 3 p.m. and a lake wind advisory in place through 8 p.m., both of which warn of hazardous boating conditions.

A mock tornado watch will be issued at 1 p.m. Thursday afternoon, followed by a statewide mock tornado warning at 1:45 p.m. The latest in any year occurred on November 16, 1931, east of Maple Plain., the weather service said. Note that most cities and counties will activate outdoor warning siren systems. The main event is looking to be from 4 through 9 p.m. It will be issued as a test of family preparedness in the home and for second shift workers.

"Thunderstorms will return to the region on Friday afternoon".

PETERSBURG — A tornado watch is in effect in every county surrounding Tampa Bay, and the region can expect thunderstorms and strong winds Sunday, which could make water activities risky. Total ice and sleet accumulations of one to two tenths of an inch are possible across the southern third of Minnesota into west central Wisconsin. Forecasters said they expect to be able to narrow the time line today.

On the final day of Hilton Head's RBC Heritage presented by Boeing, a line of severe storms is heading to the Lowcountry.
