Forecasters say parts of Alabama could see strong storms on Thursday.

The National Weather Service says a cold front and thunderstorms will move into the state Thursday morning. The system brings with it the possibility of strong winds, hail and isolated tornadoes.

“The threat will be earlier in West Alabama and later in East Alabama. We’ll be looking at the latest forecast data over the next couple hours and determine if any areas of relatively greater risk can be pinpointed,” says the National Weather Service in Birmingham on their Facebook page.

The weather service says there’s a limited risk of bad weather in central Alabama, and the chances of damaging winds are a bit higher across the Tennessee Valley.

Forecasters are predicting thunderstorms along the coast.

The weather service says the threat of severe storms will lessen later in the day.
