Storms are really struggling on radar and they have been for several hours now. We remain in the marginal risk for severe weather, but two things have really helped us out today. First, we didn’t get enough sunshine to destabilize the atmosphere enough to support severe storms. Here at the very north end of the county we’ve had no sun all day.
Another thing that helped us out was the large amount of thunderstorm activity along the Gulf Coast. That really helped to cut us off from southerly airflow that would have really warmed us up and increased the moisture in the air for storms. While we did get a bit humid, our temps just aren’t keeping up.
The closest severe weather watch to us is a severe t-storm watch down in central Alabama. The Storm Prediction Center hasn’t mentioned us all day and that’s a good thing! I’ve been watching for us to be discussed, but I haven’t heard us mentioned since this morning’s 7:00 am update.
I’ll keep an eye on things and I’ll let you know if there’s anything you need to be concerned with. Otherwise, I don’t expect any more updates this evening.
I’ve now lowered my concern level even further.
