This is the portion of the system, which will be active through at least 9pm CT. The Tornado Watch will be extended for our east Alabama Counties shortly to accommodate the timing of these storms.
Stay tuned for this round then the second round will be 3am-10am, with the strongest portion occurring between 4am-10am.
Meanwhile, this afternoon we’re still going to need to keep a close watch for any discreet action over East Alabama and the Georgia counties in the WRBL viewing area through 9 p.m. CDT. Our focus will likely be late tonight and into Thursday morning, so we must remain vigilant.
Heading into Thursday morning, the main threats we’re checking on will be tornadoes, though some could be significant or have longer tracks, along with damaging winds, large hail, and flash flooding.
