Severe Weather Threat Continues For Southwest Alabama

| October 25, 2019 @ 5:18 pm

The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 684 continues.

The tornado threat has increased over the past hour with confirmed tornado reports in Mobile County. A favorable downstream environment will continue to support a tornado threat.

A line of supercells in far southwestern Alabama has exhibited stronger low-level rotation and at least a few confirmed tornadoes over the past 30 minutes. This is likely due to an increasingly favorable low-level environment as MLCAPE has increased to around 1500 J/kg per RAP mesoanalysis. In addition, the MOB VWP shows around 300 m2/s2 of 0-1 SRH and shows 1 km flow has increased from around 35 knots to 45 knots in the past 1 to 1.5 hours. This favorable environment is expected to persist into the evening hours as these storms slowly move east and new storms develop within the warm sector.
