Fortunately there's not a whole lot between Tuscaloosa and Birmingham on the track it's on. If it gets to Birmingham however...

Velocity is the strongest its been with this tornado... But judging by the motion, it looks like it might/should occlude quickly.

Big winds overnight/morning hours for central NC.

Widespread and frequent wind gusts between 35 and 50 mph are likely 
late tonight through midday to early afternoon Monday; and these 
will impact all of cntl NC both within and away from convection/ 
precipitation. Scattered to numerous gusts between 50-60 mph are 
also expected, with isolated ones in excess of 60 mph; and this may 
necessitate upgrade to a High Wind Warning. 

While not as widespread as the background flow and gusts noted 
above, convection will focus narrow corridors of intense, damaging 
wind gusts in excess of hurricane force (74 mph), as well as 
isolated tornadoes - one or two of which could be significant (EF2 
or greater).

HRRR has an STP max going into Mobile over the next few hours. Not counting out the southern end of the line yet.

It's been howling all evening here.

Storm moving into Birmingham looks like more of a straight-line wind threat, at least for now.  What might be interesting is if this storm has left behind an outflow boundary that the storms approaching from the SW could exploit.  Overall storm mode continues to look really messy, however.
