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.
