Thunderstorms continue across parts of North Alabama tonight. They have increased in coverage and intensity in the past 45 minutes over Northeast Alabama.
They extend from the Huntsville area through Marshall County, into DeKalb and southern Cherokee Counties.
The strongest storms are south of Huntsville, south of Collinsville and south of Centre. A decent storm is near Piedmont as well. These storms will contain small hail and gusty winds. Nothing severe at this time, and they aren’t expected to become severe.
Having said that, there were power lines knocked down near Sand Rock along AL-68 around 6 p.m. as the storms moved thorugh.
These storms are moving to the southeast, but the line is sinking slowly southward. They will reach into Cullman, Blount, Etowah, northern Calhoun and Cleburne Conties in the next hour.
There are weakening showers over northern Lawrence County, as well as other weakening showers in northeastern Mississippi. They are behind the front, which is near I-59 now and should continue to weaken as they lose the heating of the day that was conspiring with colder air aloft to create instability.
There are several severe thunderstorm warnings in the Atlanta area as you can see on the radar image.
