Tornado Warning (TN)

12:05 AM - Also a wind gust of 59 mph at Haleyville Airport, straight-line winds from that long-tracked storm that produced a tornado earlier but now is absorbed in squall line. As you can see from this storm affecting Fayetteville, we are not out of the woods yet tonight. Not until the squall line has completely cleared your area. Some storms in this line can rotate, and produce a tornado. The potential is still there. 

And the damaging straight-line winds can be dangerous too. Many severe thunderstorm warnings along this line of storms. 

12:08 - Huntsville now included in a new severe thunderstorm warning. Basically all of Lawrence and Winston Counties are under a severe thunderstorm warning. 

12:11 - Lymchburg, Booneville, Mulberry, Kelso, Beach Hill, please stay sheltered until this possible tornado passes. 

Because it has been such a rough night for a lot of people, trying to give priority to any tornado warnings. The severe thunderstorm winds along the squall line are still dangerous. And the environment does favor tornadoes being able to spin up quickly. So it certainly would not hurt to take shelter from the severe thunderstorm warnings too. But because of the kind of night it has been, even though this is up on the Tennessee line, our bordering counties, giving it priority for the moment since a tornado may be here. 

12:16 - Severe thunderstorm warning including Decatur now. These straight-line winds are still dangerous. Would be wise to be in a good safe place while they move through to be on the safe side. And tornadoes can still spin up quickly within this squall line. 

12:20 - Colbert, Lauderdale, and Franklin Counties have been cleared from the tornado watch. Continues until 3 AM for the rest of us. 

Well actually some of the Tennessee counties like Wayne and Lawrence have been cleared too. They are cancelling it out behind the squall line as we would expect.
