HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

An outbreak of severe thunderstorms with the potential for damaging straight line winds, strong tornadoes, large hail, significant lightning and flooding rain is looking more likely Monday into Tuesday for all of North Alabama and parts of southern Tennessee.

Storms to our west will be in a weakening state as the arrive early Monday. Along the line, a few areas may still be strong to severe with damaging wind gusts and/or a brief spin-up. Otherwise, heavy rain and some hail will be possible.

After midday Monday, we will see new thunderstorms develop. These storms could quickly become severe and track NE at 40-50mph. Damaging winds, large hail, tornadoes and significant lightning will be possible with any of these storms. More storms are possible Monday evening and overnight into Tuesday morning. These storms could produce more severe weather and increase the flash flooding threat. Rainfall totals through Tuesday afternoon could exceed 5" in some spots.

More showers and storms are possible along the actual front Tuesday afternoon and night before things finally wind down Wednesday morning with cooler air moving in.

Prepare for possible power outages that could last several hours. If storms continue over the same area power crews may not be able to safely get the power back on.

You can find our continuous severe weather coverage through our radio partners.

We will begin streaming coverage overnight tonight on WAFF.com and on our weather and news apps. We will have complete coverage on air, online and on your mobile throughout the day on Monday and Tuesday. For a direct link to our streaming page, click here.

    "If you're going to be a gun owner...you take care of your guns," said Trinity Meche.
