Very High STP Values Moving Into Alabama

A major severe weather outbreak is likely anytime from now until midnight. See the high STP (Significant Tornado Parameter) values from the RUC at 1:00… remember, anything over 2 is very significant. These are about as high as they get.

    If i were you or your TV station I would go ahead and start my wall-to-wall TV coverage. The first Bham station that goes on air will prob. get a majority of the viewers. Just some advice.

    I’m in Huntsville and it appears the STP values are greatly reduced, I assume due to the heavy rain / cloud cover we are currently experiencing. Do you see there will be sufficient clearing for those values to climb back up or have we had a stroke of good luck that will keep us from the greatest threats of severe weather? Thanks!

    Uh, well, I think my question has been answered by all of the sirens going off. Stay safe everyone.
