Everyone from Birmingham southward needs to be on guard tomorrow.. model guidance has been consistently too low with moisture return with this system so far, and even if guidance is accurate, it will be adequate to maintain severe thunderstorms. We've already seen probably 1 strong tornado out of this system in E Texas today, and frankly the environment looks even more favorable over AL tomorrow, barring any flies in the ointment that have not yet shown themselves. This won't be a WIDESPREAD event, but I think we may see one or two tornadic supercells along or S of I-20 tomorrow afternoon, and I wouldn't rule out a significant tornado either..

Return flow trajectory doesn't look too impressive for a lot of AL. Lots of dews in the 50s, but closer to the coast where low to mid 60 dews can work in, we'll see more surface destabilization.

Added it to the sticky. Once we see some additional warnings or a watch we will throw a notice up for it.

Southwest Alabama looks like the spot to be according to high res models.

The mets have been classifying this a a low to marginal event.

They are talking more about going back into drought conditions... so they don't seem concerned to me at all.

You guys seeing something different.?

Jones County, MS tornado warning allowed to expire.
New TOR Warning for Kemper and Noxubee counties in MS. If they continue to move into AL they will be entering Pickens and Sumter. BMX has a Significant Weather Advisory issued for those counties (including Greene) at this time.

Lawd I’m too busy to be dealing with this pesky storm to my WSW.
Just shake a broom at it. Doesn't looks BMX is going to bit and JAN just canceled the TOR warning for Noxubee, MS.

Wow, didn't see that one coming. Amazing how we can go from deep freeze to severe weather event so quickly... well, a mild weekend in between but whatever. Nice to have a good solid rain again even if it will make work conditions messy tomorrow.

That is what makes La Nina’s so volatile. The large temperature swings, strong gradient from large northern snowpack, and enhanced polar jet. I just don’t quite believe we will get through this spring without an event or two of note.

Was spring 2014 a La Nina year?
