Tornado Warning Extended (Huntsville)

Please stay sheltered for this as supercells like this (watched it since Mississippi) can cycle up and down quickly. Play it safe. 

10:21 - Note that our severe weather threat is expected to continue for at least another couple hours, they may have to extend watch over into Georgia. Stay sheltered in these tornado warnings even though the storms appear to be weakening somewhat - that doesn't always last, and it is hard to tell at night just from radar data. Better safe than sorry with these. 

10:24 - Downtown Huntsville stay sheltered. This storm has knocked out power for a lot of people athough no tornado confirmation so far. 

10:28 - Also a good idea to stay sheltered in Eastern Marion and Franklin Counties and even in that broad severe thunderstorm warning upstream that affects especially Lawrence County.

10:31 - The tornado warning was let go for Franklin County but still continues for Marion, and definitely for Madison and Jackson County. 

10:35 - Okay, thankfully the tornado signatures have weakened and gone away, and we have no more tornado warnings. We only have severe thunderstorm warnings. Will start a new post.
