Bare Bones Forecast

 Well another stormy night has ended, at least the severe weather threat for North Alabama and Southern Middle Tennessee. 

The rest of today any remaining showers and storms should remain widely scattered, and the bulk of the day will become mostly sunny with a High near 86. 

Tuesday looks sunny behind the front, drier air pushing in, we'll see a High in about the 83-85 range, a Low about 60-62. 

Maybe a few passing clouds Wednesday as we get a reinforcing dry front to bring even more cool dry air in here. High near 80, Low near 60. 

Then Thursday we feel the effects of that extra shot of cool dry air. Sunny skies and a High struggling to even make 80, probably just upper 70's. The morning Low should be down in the upper 50's or maybe even mid-50's. 

Sunny skies on Friday, High near 80 or so, Low in upper 50's. 

And then Saturday and Sunday, a few clouds coming back and chances for isolated rain, about a 20% chance, which translates to a 1-in-5 chance of any one spot getting a shower or thunderstorm. Highs should be in the lower 80's, Lows in the lower 60's. And these rain chances do not look any higher than on typical summer days. Which kinda' works since Saturday is the first day of June, meteorological summer. Also the first day of hurricane season technically but let's not jinx anything. 

We got off pretty good with this severe weather event. Sounds like we just had tree and power line damage around here, probably from straight-line winds, but they'll go out and survey it in case there was a tornado somewhere in the mix. We definitely got the leftovers with this one, and for some reason, even with supercells forming just ahead of the squall line and then merging with it, it didn't get anywhere near as bad as it could have. 



Nationwide it was a different story, numerous tornado reports, some did significant damage in the Plains and Mid-South on Saturday and then yesterday, the focus was more in Missouri, Kentucky, and Southern Illinois for tornadoes. Tons of damaging thunderstorm winds across the Ohio Valley and over into the Mid-Atlantic yesterday. A fair amount of large hail too, especially in Missouri where those supercells originally fired up that ended up producing so much tornado damage. The hail in those was pretty crazy too. 

Of course we don't have the final tally yet, and there are storm surveys to be done this week. 

But that's a quick look at things. I've heard of no injuries in North Alabama or from our neighbors up there in Tennessee. So with pleasant weather coming in, I feel like taking a cat nap, whether my cats want to nap with me or not. 

Hasta luego.

Severe T-Storm Warning


4:20 AM - Particularly for Cullman, Marshall, and Dekalb Counties, the National Weather Service in Huntsville is emphasizing that emergency management has reported numerous trees down and power outages in these areas. And that a tornado could quickly spin up in these areas. So folks in Cullman, Hanceville, down to Colony, and in Arab, Albertville, all the way up to Fort Payne, I'd go ahead and get to your safe place and stay there until these storms pass. Even if it's straight-line winds, the new warning was issued because of confirmed damage. 

Need to be in a small room or hallway on the lowest floor of a sturdy house, near the center of building, away from windows. 

4:33 - The line of these storms is about to Holly Pond now. Emergency management continues to report lots of downed trees and people without power from this group of severe thunderstorms. A tornado could quickly develop in this environment, but it doesn't take a tornado to do some damage. The winds can blow in a straight line and do this. Some small hail is also in these storms and of course lots of lightning. 

4:42 - These storms have weakened below severe limits as they push East/Southeast. So the warnings at least for Cullman, Marshall, and Dekalb Counties are being allowed to expire. 

4:44 - For anyone that follows my cat adventures, I was only able to get Salem into the center part of the house when one of those severe thunderstorm warnings looked a little too dicey for me to ignore. I have no idea where Stormy was. She might have been up behind a curtain in the window watching the storm. The two of them have fought a lot since we came out of cover. And I was just being extra cautious. Damage reported, low risk of a tornado spinning up, I ran the computer on battery power and got in the safer part of the house for a few minutes. Their antics are funny but exasperating sometimes . . . 



4:46 - A severe thunderstorm warning remains in effect until 5:15 AM CDT for Blount, Etowah, and Cherokee Counties. 

That big green polygon is a swath of counties affected by a Flash Flood Warning, includes Huntsville. 

And those tan boxes like in Lamar County in West Central Alabama are Special Weather Statements for strong thunderstorms that are staying below severe limits. 

4:55 - A severe thunderstorm watch has been extended down into Central Alabama. 

4:58 - Got a severe thunderstorm warning for Lamar and Fayette Counties. The threat is really shifting into Central Alabama more than North Alabama per se now. 



5:03 AM - The Tornado Watch has been cleared for all the counties served by the National Weather Service offices in Huntsville and Nashville. And no further severe weather is expected for North Alabama.

Tornado Warning



3:08 AM - And somebody might need it in Spanish . . . 


So here be another graphic. This includes places like Brownsboro and Gurley. Hard to confirm at night, but it does look pretty impressive on radar. 

Well just as soon as I said that, the next volume scan showed much weaker rotation. But you have to respect warnings tonight. Storms cycle up and down. And sometimes in this kind of a setup, a storm can produce several brief tornadoes in the same general area, where you see rotation on the radar. 


3:13 - And now we have a new Tornado Warning polygon that includes Hytop and Scottsboro. The polygon affects Madison, Jackson, and Marshall Counties. 



3:15 - Here's a really good look at who's in this new polygon. 



3:17 - And we also have a large Flash Flood Warning polygon from about Moulton and Hartselle through Huntsville up to Winchester. 

Also a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Northeast Jackson County and clipping Northern Dekalb County, mainly the community of Ider there. 

3:21 - The rotation looks weak on radar at the moment, but in these polygons, still need to stay in a small central room or hallway on the lowest floor of a sturdy house, away from windows. 

New tornado warning . . . just going to post the new one below, the graphics and describe. Not going to make a new post for every single warning like this, every polygon. Because that would get pretty confusing after a while, too many posts. 



New Hope, Guntersville, Albertville, and Geraldine in Marshall and Dekalb Counties are included in this new warning polygon. 

Also the town of Grant in this new polygon for the new tornado warning. 



3:36 - Had technical problems and had to reboot, this new Tornado Warning is mainly for Arab. 

This does include Eva and far Northeast Cullman County like Baileyton and Holly Pond. Also Union Grove, Guntersville, Albertville, and Douglas and Boaz in Marshall County included in this new warning. 

And by the way, what I was trying to post when the connection went out briefly . . . Cullman, the city, is now included in a Severe Thunderstorm Warning. So wouldn't be a bad idea to stay in a safe place there even though it is more likely to be damaging straight line winds. It carries a note that tornadoes can develop very quickly in this environment. 

3:40 - And right here are our only severe thunderstorm left to deal with in North Alabama at the moment. Unfortunately more than one segment appears to be trying to produce brief tornadoes. And those are still dangerous. Even if only on the ground for a minute or two, or five or ten minutes, any tornado is dangerous. Need to get to shelter and stay there. 



3:43 - And now we have a Severe Thunderstorm Warning that extends all the way over to Fort Payne in Dekalb County. Wouldn't hurt to shelter to some extent from these warnings for damaging straight line winds too. Sometimes in a squall line overnight, it's tough to tell the difference really. 



3:46 - Sort of good news, our only remaining Tornado Warning is the storm affecting Eva, Baileyton, Arab, Guntersville, down to Boaz. The ones further to the Northeast have been let go. Some severe thunderstorm warnings are still in effect for damaging winds and hail in NE AL though. 



3:51 - Ok that new severe thunderstorm warning actually includes almost all of Dekalb County and Southern Jackson County, places like Hollywood and Scottsboro. 



3:52 - Zooming in on our one Tornado Warning at the moment, looks like the best chance of seeing a tornado right now is near Arab. But anywhere in this polygon, please respect the warning and stay sheltered. Because in a situation like this, sometimes more than one tornado can quickly spin up within the same general area. They can come and go really fast. And you want to be in a safe place in case of that and also from any damaging straight-line winds or hail such a severe thunderstorm may be producing apart from a tornado. 


3:55 - The Tornado Watch has been cleared early for Lauderdale, Colbert, Franklin, Limestone, and Lawrence Counties. And it has also been cleared for all of our Tennessee Counties just across the border there. The rest of North Alabama is still under it as this squall line moves through and some supercells merged with it. 

And it looks like they'll clear Madison County from the watch soon too. 

3:59 - The tornado warning is cancelled for Marshall County, radar update incoming . . . 




4:02 AM - We have a Severe Thunderstorm Warning still in effect for Northeast Cullman County, into Morgan County, Marshall County, Dekalb County, and Southern Jackson County. Damaging winds and some hail are possible in these storms. And in tonight's environment where some damage has been reported to trees and power lines at times, it is best to play it safe. 

Since the tornado warning has been let go, going to start a new post of the Flash Flood Warnings since really haven't caught up with that.

Severe T-Storm Warning


Several of these storms have shown weak rotation at times, so I'd go ahead and shelter even though these are more likely to be damaging straight line winds. 



2:51 AM - Here are a look at the two Tornado Warnings in Jackson County. The northern one mainly affects Bridgeport. 

The southern one is between Stevenson and Shiloh. 



2:54 - Besides those in the corner of Northeast Alabama, we have severe thunderstorm warnings for potential of damaging winds and large hail. Some damage has been confirmed in Decatur from these thunderstorms already, trees and power lines blown down, via broadcast media. 

From Russellville to Hartselle to Huntsville is under one severe thunderstorm warning polygon. 

And then East of Huntsville through Jackson County, Northern Dekalb, into Tennessee up toward Chattanooga, seeing evidence of damaging winds and some hail in these storms. 



3:03 AM - Most Tennessee counties have been cleared from the tornado watch now. 

Some thunderstorms are moving into Good Hope and Cullman but at this point are well under any kind of severe limits.

Tornado Warning




2:03 AM - This storm is currently near New Market. 

And will mostly stay over rural areas within this warning polygon. But people still live in these small towns or near them. Anywhere in this polygon, I would stay in your tornado shelter until this warning expires or you are sure the storms have passed you. 

2:08 AM - Here is the wide view. We have numerous severe thunderstorm warnings in effect. 

The worst one looks like in Wayne and Lawrence County right now. But of course one includes Huntsville. One includes the Shoals. One includes Decatur. 

Actually we have two overlapping that include Decatur. So I'll just post an updated radar image. 



In any of these polygons, wouldn't be a bad idea to go to a safe place. Certainly take cover if in this Tornado Warning. 

2:16 - And now Madison County has been cleared, though they are still under a Severe Thunderstorm Warning. Tornado Warning continues for these parts of Northern Jackson County, mainly around Hytop. Which is where the radar is you're seeing, radar tower is there. 



2:22 - From Hartselle to Decatur to Huntsville, damaging wind gusts and severe hail are possible. 

Also in Franklin, Colbert, and Lauderdale Counties up into Wayne and Lawrence Counties in Tennessee, stay in a safe place from damaging winds and maybe some large hail. 

That storm in Wayne and Lawrence Counties is no longer showing signs of rotation like it was earlier. 

2:25 - The tornado warning has been cancelled. We have several severe thunderstorm warnings left, but no tornado warnings at the moment.

Tornado Warning

National Weather Service Huntsville AL

151 AM CDT Mon May 27 2024


The National Weather Service in Huntsville Alabama has issued a


* Tornado Warning for...

  Northwestern Jackson County in northeastern Alabama...

  Northeastern Madison County in north central Alabama...

  South central Franklin County in Middle Tennessee...


* Until 230 AM CDT.


* At 150 AM CDT, a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado

  was located over Moores Mill, moving east at 45 mph.


  HAZARD...Tornado.


  SOURCE...Radar indicated rotation.


  IMPACT...Flying debris will be dangerous to those caught without 

           shelter. Mobile homes will be damaged or destroyed. 

           Damage to roofs, windows, and vehicles will occur.  Tree 

           damage is likely.


* This dangerous storm will be near...

  New Market around 155 AM CDT.


Other locations impacted by this tornadic thunderstorm include

Estillfork, Francisco, Hytop, Princeton, Jericho, and Larkin.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...


TAKE COVER NOW! Move to a basement or an interior room on the lowest

floor of a sturdy building. Avoid windows. If you are outdoors, in a

mobile home, or in a vehicle, move to the closest substantial shelter

and protect yourself from flying debris.

Tornado Watch




Here we go. 



1:16 AM - Update on the severe thunderstorm, it is now located near Athens and moving East at about 35 mph toward Madison and Huntsville. 



1:21 - And this is on the fringes of the area I usually post updates about on here, but we have a possible tornado that is aiming for the town of Savannah. This tornado warning is for Henderson, McNairy, Chester, Decatur, and Hardin Counties in Tennessee. Hardin County does hug the state line there. 

And actually it only clips the northern part of Savannah, the polygon. It's just that was the town I was most familiar with when I looked at the text of the warning. 



1:30 - That severe thunderstorm warning has been extended, reissued to the East to even parts of Jackson County now, almost all of Madison County included. Potential for damaging wind gusts and quarter-sized hail here. And the environment is one in which a tornado could quickly develop. 

So I'd get into a small interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy house. 



1:33 - Got us another one. From Russellville to Decatur, Priceville, and Hartselle, go ahead and be in a good safe place from potentially damaging winds and large hail. And remember the environment does favor tornadoes tonight. 

1:39 - And things are getting busy. That newest warning that includes Wayne and Lawrence Counties in Tennessee could have wind gusts up to 70 mph and has shown rotation at times, could easily produce a tornado with little or no additional warning. 

So remember - small interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy house (not a mobile home), away from windows. And if you have time, cover your body, especially your head. That could really help you out if there is a tornado in this storm. Which is hard to confirm at night. 

1:52 - Things sure are busy. Lauderdale. Colbert, and Franklin Counties are now blanketed with a new Severe Thunderstorm Warning. TORNADO WARNIGN NEW MARKET NEW POST
