There have been weak rotational signatures in a few cells over the past couple of hours, but no severe warnings are active for this region at the moment.

A Tornado Watch remains in effect until 2 AM for 33 counties in central Alabama, including Autauga, Bibb, Blount, Calhoun, Chambers, Cherokee, Chilton, Clay, Cleburne, Coosa, Dallas, Elmore, Etowah, Fayette, Greene, Hale, Jefferson, Lamar, Lowndes, Marengo, Marion, Montgomery, Perry, Pickens, Randolph, Shelby, St. Clair, Sumter, Talladega, Tallapoosa, Tuscaloosa, Walker, and Winston, as well as 4 counties in North Alabama, including Cullman, DeKalb, Jackson, and Marshall counties.
