No Warnings On The Board At 9:00 PM; Tornado Watch Continues

| March 24, 2020 @ 9:11 pm

As of 9:00 pm, all of the tornado and severe thunderstorm warnings have been either canceled or expired and all of the activity is well below severe limits at this point.

Rain and thunderstorms continue to move eastward across the northern half and now into the western parts of North/Central Alabama with the heaviest activity stretching from Holly Pond to Dodge City to Jasper to Carbon Hill.

Rain has come to an end over the northwestern parts of the area along and north of a line from Hackleburg to Moulton to Huntsville. Therefore, the tornado watch has been canceled for those northwestern counties.

SPC continues a Slight Risk for locations north of a line from just south of Macedonia (Pickens Co.) to Tarrant (Jefferson Co.) to just north of Fruithurst (Cleburne Co.). A MARGINAL RISK is up for locations north of a line from just south of Cuba (Sumter Co.) to just south of Billingsley (Autauga Co.) to Lanette (Chambers Co.).

At this point, the main threats will be the potential for damaging winds up to 60 MPH and large hail up to one inch in diameter. There is a smaller threat of a brief tornado or two, but those odds are very, very low at this point.

NWS Birmingham has just canceled the tornado watch for Lamar and Marion counties as the threat for severe weather has passed those locations. The watch continues until 10:00 pm for Winston County, and until midnight for Blount, Cherokee, Etowah, Fayette, and Walker counties.

NWS Huntsville also continues a tornado watch until 10:00 pm for Franklin, Lincoln, Moore [TN] and Cullman, DeKalb, Jackson, Lawrence, Limestone, Madison, Marshall, and Morgan counties. Lawrence County has just been removed from the watch.
