2015-06-24_22-32-48

Storms continue to push westward tonight and are still capable of strong winds and hail.

The system has congealed into a nice little convective system that extends from western Shelby County down to Greenville in Butler County.

Areas from just south of Tuscaloosa to Monroeville will be under the gun over the next couple of hours.

SPECIAL NOTE
The NWS in Birmingham at the Shelby County Airport in Calera has lost commercial power and is on its backup generator. Services are not being affected except for a little bit of social media. I can just picture Gary Goggins typing away on his smartphone! Thanks for all you do BMX!
