Here’s the watch map.

Meanwhile for the rest of us, SPC continues a Marginal Severe Risk as far south as Layfayette, Pike Road and Greenville.  Damaging winds to 60+ mph possible is a few scattered storms through early this evening until roughly 9PM.


Future Radar shows the most potent storm activity in central and north AL, most likely for the rest of the afternoon, and into the early evening, before the intensity of the storms weaken below severe weather threshold.
