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.
