Moving into an area of slightly better low level shear but also the cold pool from the earlier MCS. Small cells trying to develop N and NW of this cluster, HRRR suggests stuff developing even further to the NW but not buying into that just yet

An almost non-existent spring here in Alabama, with the exception of that extreme hail and tornado event in North Alabama, then in July we get a tornado with a debris ball signature and it wasn’t from a tropical system. Interesting year for sure.

Moderate storms firing up in the Birmingham area at 8:15 pm cst or so. These seem too far West to be part of the system dynamics in east Alabama. Any way they might tap in to the dynamics of the East Alabama storms as they move east? Seems doubtful.

This system has been a huge rainmaker up here. We're close to 3" here and there are some areas in VA south of the District that have gotten close to 5" (as of 8 PM and it's still pouring). Thanking my lucky stars again that we live on top of a hill.

As we lose the daytime heating new storms continue to develop farther and farther west in Central Alabama. At 9:30 pm new storms have developed just NW of Tuscaloosa and a broken line of storms runs in a line west to east from Tuscaloosa all the way east to Lagrange Ga.

Is there a boundary or something attributing to this?

Sheash radar indicated baseball sized hail or larger over Cleburne county.

About to need a tornado warning.
I drove through that storm. I was watching it as I approached from the East. We were pelted with Pea Size hail, I did see some rotation in the storm but I didn't see a Tornado in it.

I think the KY tornado with the super impressive TDS and debris ball was EF1; goes to show it doesn't take much to get a heavy debris sig in an area with tons of trees, I guess
