NWS Birmingham continues the SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH until 9 pm tonight for Autauga, Barbour, Bullock, Calhoun, Chambers, Chilton, Clay, Cleburne, Coosa, Dallas, Elmore, Lee, Lowndes, Macon, Marengo, Montgomery, Perry, Pike, Randolph, Russell, Talladega, and Tallapoosa counties in Central Alabama.
Bibb, Cherokee, Greene, Hale, Shelby, Sumter, Etowah, St. Clair, Jefferson, Blount, and Tuscaloosa counties were the last set of counties removed from the watch as the threat for severe storms are over for those locations.
Only a Marginal Risk for severe storms remains through the rest of the evening and into the late-night hours for the southern parts of Central Alabama. This includes the cities of Anniston, Talladega, Alexander City, Clanton, Auburn, Demopolis, Selma, Montgomery, Eufaula, and Troy. The rest of North/Central Alabama is free from any risk of severe storms.
Isolated damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph and quarter size hail remain as the main threats in the Marginal Risk locations, while the tornado threat has nearly dropped to zero. That still means that a brief tornado may be possible with any storm that can get going.
