Only one active tornado warning at the moment, which is wild...

Rotation at Blanche, AL and Little River, AL still looks impressive.

Surprised those storms from Meridian to Tuscaloosa are not stronger.  Inflow should be somewhat unimpeded.  Not that I would want them to be any stronger; I have relatives of my family that live in the Eutaw, AL area.

There may be too many cells moving over worked over territory except for the southern AL area. We shall see.

Are you talking about the current cell north of Meridian about to move into western Al?

Cell south of Chattanooga will cross 75 in about 30 min. Rotation getting tighter but nothing on CC yet. e4c17f5238ea70c37be6ff8d8b75180d.png

Tuscaloosa reporting 72/70, so there is plenty of humidity around.  While the circulation near Union is weakening, the situation could change quickly given other parameters.

Anyone heard any reports out of the path of either of the big tornados? I haven’t heard or seen anything about bassfield.

A chaser got in and was able to see the damage. Looked almost certainly EF-4 damage there, but I honestly think it could have been an EF-5

CC has lowered near LaFayette, GA-- seems to be correlated to rotation on SRV

Mesoscale Discussion 0368
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0736 PM CDT Sun Apr 12 2020

   Areas affected...southeast Mississippi/central and southern Alabama

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 110...

   Valid 130036Z - 130200Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 110 continues.

   SUMMARY...Severe/tornado risk continues across WW 110.

   DISCUSSION...Latest radar loop shows a couple of rotating cells
   moving east-northeastward across the northwestern corner of the WW
   at this time -- i.e. Greene/Sumter County area in Alabama.  The
   broader band of convection that includes these storms extends
   south-southwestward into eastern Louisiana, where a few
   well-organized storms are occurring.  This convection will spread
   into western portions of WW 110 over the next hour -- sustained by
   an axis of 1500 to 2000 J/kg mixed-layer CAPE over the southwestern
   corner of Alabama.  Given the background kinematic environment that
   remains strongly supportive of supercells, severe risk -- including
   potential for tornadoes -- continues.

Would be first EF5 since the Moore, OK tornado of 2013. Feels like that was another century...
