Description:"The purpose of this study is to quantitatively describe the severe weather climatology for Birmingham's County Warning Area (CWA). The Birmingham CWA has undergone several changes through the years. From the early 1970s through the mid-90s the warning responsibility for Alabama's 67 counties was split among six NWS offices, with Birmingham's CWA encompassing 25 counties in north and west-central Alabama. As the modernization and associated restructuring of the NWS drew to a close, CWA configurations in Alabama changed significantly. Birmingham's area of responsibility expanded to include 50 counties in north and central Alabama, including most of the CWA's previously served by Huntsville and Montgomery"--Introduction.
