BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Forecasters say Alabama could be in for a round of severe weather this week.

The National Weather Service says northwestern Alabama faces an elevated risk of damaging winds and isolated twisters beginning Tuesday afternoon.

Forecast models show a lesser threat of severe weather extending south and east across the state on Tuesday evening.

Weather service meteorologist Jim Stefkovich says forecast can change before Tuesday. But he says the question right now is how far the severe weather extends eastward across the state.

Weather service maps show the possibility of strong storms extending from northern Mississippi all the way north to southern Kentucky.
