ACTIVE DAY: The remnant circulation of former Hurricane Laura will turn eastward today, passing north of Alabama. We have a very moist, tropical air mass in place this morning, and as the air heats and becomes more unstable this afternoon there is a chance of a few stronger storms in the spiral bands wrapping into the circulation to the north. With fairly high SRH (Storm Relative Helicity) values, a few storms might show some rotation, and there is the risk of a few isolated, brief tornadoes.
