Tornado Watch Has Been Canceled; Severe Threat Appears To Be Over

| March 24, 2020 @ 10:41 pm

The last two counties remaining in the Tornado Watch that was set to expire at midnight tonight were allowed to be canceled as the threat for organized severe storms have come to an end. We may still have a strong storm or two throughout the rest of the night and into the overnight as these showers and storms continue to move east-southeastward, but conditions are more stable over the southern half of the area.

The heaviest storms at this moment are lined up just to the north of the I-20 corridor stretching from West Jefferson to Pinson to Ragland to Alexandria. The good news is that these are moving quickly enough that flash flooding should not be an issue tonight, but some localized ponding may be possible in poor drainage areas.

Unless any of these storms decide to act up, this will be the last update for the night. Have a great night.
