Severe weather predicted for Thursday night

LOCAL NEWS — According to the National Weather Service office in Hunstville, significant thunderstorms could hit Moore County Thursday night. The local office issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook notice for Moore, Lincoln, and Franklin counties in Tennessee as well as several North Alabama counties on Thursday morning.

A storm system moving in from the north west will move into the area in the overnight hours and could bring with it a risk of severe thunderstorms and damaging wind gusts of 50-60 mph. With an already saturated ground, this would mean an increased risk of falling trees and downed power lines. Weather officials predict the worst storms will hit Lynchburg after 1 a.m.

Thunderstorms should continue through Friday morning as the cold front moves through but should end by late morning. To view the complete forecast, click here. •
