Storms Today

At 7:18 this morning I saw a huge cloud to ground lightning strike southeast of Decatur. There was heavy rain between Priceville and Decatur between 7:20 and 7:30. You can see that represented above on radar images from ABC 33/40 in Birmingham and WAFF 48 in Huntsville.
Severe storms have occurred to our west with reports of damage in Louisiana and Mississippi from possible tornadoes. Another round of strong to severe storms is expected to roll into Alabama this afternoon with the passage of a cold front. The greatest chance for tornadoes and severe weather is in Central and South Alabama. However, the Storm Prediction Center has all of Alabama in the "slight risk" category for severe weather today.
