Think I saw that too. Looked like the Hackleburg storm in terms of just being so massively wide. If that whole thing was indeed the wedge.

Humphress seems to have a large wedge as well

I must admit I am a bit baffled.  We have had many tornadoes, some long tracked.  The current surface low is 1002 mb in southern IL, currently deepening but not as fast as expected.  I always thought a number of svr parameters were tied to the strength of the surface low, yet we have had extreme values with a low pressure not 990 or lower and many svr reports.

That's a *big* tornado 

I know it's not recommended to talk about ratings on this site, but I would be absolutely stunned if that was less than an absolutely maxed out EF4, or worse.

I didn't have radarscope in 2011 for my phone, but I've been seeing colors/signatures I've never seen on that app before.

Feels like a historic tornado on the ground at the moment.

The environment that's been in place across Alabama has been high-end for much of the day despite models completely missing with their handling of surface evolution further west. Certainly worth discussing why it seems like models continue to miss on key details after this is over.

The tornado, at some point in its life cycle, was capable of producing EF5 damage. I have absolutely no doubt about that. However, did the tornado hit anything capable of being rated EF-5 while the tornado was at its most violent? Who knows.

..2220Z UPDATE     A LONG-TRACK, STRONG TO POTENTIALLY VIOLENT TORNADO IS ONGOING   ACROSS CENTRAL AL AND WILL LIKELY PERSIST TOWARDS THE GA BORDER   GIVEN A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT. HAVE EXPANDED THE CATEGORICAL RISKS   SOUTHEAST TO ACCOUNT FOR THIS EXTREMELY INTENSE SUPERCELL.  

Was curious how far this thing can persist.  Hard to imagine it could get to the south of Atlanta, but it’s an exceptional system.
