Be prepared Birmingham for some good old fashion December weather “whiplash” beginning Monday and ending on Thursday morning.
According to the National Weather Service – Birmingham Office, starting Monday evening around 7:00p.m. and ending early Tuesday morning at 1:00a.m., the Magic City may be in store for some spring-like severe weather.
Since it is December, preparing for severe weather such as tornados, hail and high winds are usually not on the top of your “to do” list. Take a few minutes today to get ready for tonight’s potential stormy weather.
From Storms to Freezing
Only in Alabama can you have nearly a 50 degree change in the weather over 12-16 hours. On Tuesday night temperatures are expected to plunge to the sub-freezing.
As a result, the City of Birmingham has already announced that they are opening a Warming Station at the Boutwell Auditorium on the nights of Tuesday, December 17 and Wednesday, December 18.
Remember, Boutwell Auditorium is located at 1930 Rev. Abraham Woods, Jr. Boulevard. Boutwell will operate from 5 p.m. to 7 a.m. on both nights.
Stay Tuned Locally
Locally, all the local television stations are closely watching the wacky December weather.
