Now is a good time to review your family’s severe weather plan. Take a moment today to ensure that your phone and any external batteries are fully charged so that you’re prepared in the event of a power outage, and make sure you have a way to receive weather watches and warnings throughout the overnight hours.

Should a tornado warning be issued in our listening area, we’ll keep you and your family informed and safe with live and local wall-to-wall coverage from Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa’s own Meteorologist Bobby Best.

On a positive note, storms are expected to bring more badly-needed rain to West Alabama. Tuscaloosa could see up to 1.5 inches of additional rainfall tonight.
