Tornadoes possible as storm moves across Hale County on Tuesday


Hale County Courthouse will be closed at noon on Tuesday, March 23 in anticipation of severe weather in the area that afternoon. Hale County Probate Judge Arthur Crawford made the announcement on Monday evening as predictions of the storm’s severity became more certain.

Hale County is considered to be in an area of “enhanced risk” as the storms move from Mississippi into Alabama. 

The National Weather Service’s Birmingham office released information throughout the day on Monday outlining the potential threat. 

Computer models predict the storm will travel through west central Alabama Tuesday afternoon through evening. The worst parts of the storm are predicted to pass through Hale County from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. Supercells ahead of the main storm system may start to form in the area at around 4:00 p.m. NWS says this storm could produce tornadic activity in Alabama. 


NWS has placed Hale County under a wind advisory from Tuesday through Wednesday morning, with gusts of up to 40 miles per hour possible. 

The agency has also issued a flood watch including Hale County. Rainfall with a total of 1 to 3 inches in the area could bring flooding throughout West Alabama. 

In response, some area offices and businesses announced closures ahead of the storm. Schools in Greensboro and Moundville are closed for Spring Break this week.
