They must not think this second round will do anything for central Alabama with no watch
New MD addresses this.

MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0029
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0745 PM CST TUE JAN 03 2023

AREAS AFFECTED...CENTRAL GULF STATES

CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH POSSIBLE

VALID 040145Z - 040315Z


PROBABILITY OF WATCH ISSUANCE...60 PERCENT

SUMMARY...A GRADUAL INCREASE IN CONVECTION IS EXPECTED AS THE
EVENING PROGRESSES, WITH IT A RISK OF WIND AND PERHAPS A TORNADO OR
TWO. A NEW WATCH MAY BE WARRANTED.

DISCUSSION...BOUNDARY-LAYER AIR MASS IS EXPECTED TO GRADUALLY
RESPOND ACROSS THE LOWER MS VALLEY DUE TO AN APPROACHING SHORT-WAVE
TROUGH OVER TEXAS. LOW-LEVEL FLOW SHOULD BECOME A BIT MORE
CONVERGENT WHICH SHOULD ENCOURAGE ADDITIONAL CONVECTIVE DEVELOPMENT
AND PERHAPS MORE ROBUST UPDRAFTS. OVER THE LAST HOUR OR SO, A FAIR
NUMBER OF THUNDERSTORMS HAVE MATURED FROM SOUTH-CENTRAL LA INTO
EAST-CENTRAL MS. SEVERAL SUPERCELLS ARE OBSERVED ALONG THIS CORRIDOR
AND AN UPWARD TICK IN COVERAGE/INTENSITY MAY BE NOTED AS THE EVENING
PROGRESSES. OVERALL, SCATTERED STRONG/SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS SHOULD
BECOME MORE NOTEWORTHY PRIOR TO FRONTAL PASSAGE. A NEW WATCH MAY BE
WARRANTED TO ACCOUNT FOR THIS RISK.

1km helicity will be a lot higher tonight than it has been during the day today, values reaching 300+ in central Alabama. Values today have been ranging around 150 if that.

Cape is around 100-1800 with pretty good shear makes a sneaky night time event.
Well there isn’t any helictites right now lol. I’m almost home to Gardendale, just north of bham, watching them there and if they get out of hand I’ll be back out
