Late posting this, but weather radio never alerted for it. I did not wake up until storms were moving through Winston and Cullman counties . . . catching up now. The Elsa cat is smarter than me, because I could find no sign of her, she had already found her shelter somewhere.
Anyway this goes until 5 PM. The severe thunderstorm is pushing into Southern parts of Cullman County now, more toward Hanceville and Bremen. I believe those warnings still showing up on the map in Northeast Alabama were allowed to expire on time.
11:56 AM - The tornado threat is isolated up this way, more likely to have problems down toward Birmingham and points South.
