The latest look at the conditions across the area shows that there is a lack of instability across the northern half of North/Central Alabama for the formation and/or continuation of stronger to severe storms. At this point, parameters are poor and any threat of stronger to severe storms is very low.
The cold front is also undercutting whatever storms are moving across the northwestern parts of Central Alabama. While the threat remains very low for severe storms, we still can’t rule out a stronger storm or two with gusty winds. There is still a very small threat of a brief tornado north of I-59 as there is still a decent amount of helicity and shear, but those values continue to slowly decline.
With that being said, a Significant Weather Advisory was just issued for portions of Jackson, Marshall, Madison, Dekalb, and Morgan counties until 12:30 am. Here is the text:
