I am becoming less concerned, convection mode is very messy, the chance of an organized cold pool forming is looking less likely...at least northwest of Bham.
The lightning has been insane in the walker county storm. I’m a little surprised the NWS never issued a severe T-Storm warning.

Are we still expecting 2 waves today or what? I saw on Spann's blog where he said yesterday there would be another threat from 3 this afternoon until 10 tonight. Is that still on the table or are things arriving faster than expected?

Just watching to see if that destructive line that's expected to sweep through the moderate can get cranking; hopefully this far north things can stay fairly stable

I’m hoping all of us in and north of this cluster of storms over north-central Alabama right now will be sparred anything too bad from the line this evening. My temperature and dew point have already fallen back into the mid-60s, so hopefully the energy over this part of the state is getting used up.

Yeah I'm barely at 70 right now and really doesn't look like there's going to be much sun, unless we get some insane advection hopefully this means everything stays a bit south.
