Severe Weather Update: Tornado Watch in Effect for Central Alabama

The National Weather Service said that in Chilton County, a tornado passed through the area near Riderville, Plantersville, and Parnell. The National Weather Service has issued a Tornado Watch 82 for 33 counties in central Alabama until 2 AM CDT Wednesday.

These counties are Autauga, Bibb, Calhoun, Chambers, Cherokee, Chilton, Clay, Cleburne, Coosa, Dallas, Elmore, Etowah, Fayette, Lamar, Lowndes, Marion, Montgomery, Perry, Pickens, Shelby, St. Clair, Talladega, Tallapoosa, Walker, and Winston. Keep an eye on the weather and be ready for it to change. North Alabama’s Cullman, DeKalb, Jackson, and Marshall counties are also on the Tornado Watch.

Parts of North and Central Alabama are getting rain and storms right now, but they’re not too dangerous, and there are no severe weather threats as we head into the late night. The new HRRR model, on the other hand, says that the area is still very unstable, especially along and south of the I-20 corridor.

This model also shows that there is a good chance of tornadoes in these places. There is also a lot of wind shear and helicity, which can cause severe storms. From the southern part of Shelby County to the state line with Georgia near Heflin, there is a good chance of spinning updrafts, which can turn into tornadoes. The dewpoints, which show how much water is in the air, are still high, which makes things even less stable.

The National Weather Service (NWS) in Birmingham has dropped the Tornado Watch for Greene, Sumter, Tuscaloosa, and Walker counties. Cullman County has also been taken off the watch list by the NWS in Huntsville.
