9:00 AM Update
The main line of heavy rain and storms has made its way into the Huntsville metro area, and is continuing to move east at approximately 40mph. Widespread winds in excess of 40mph have been reported with occasional gusts over 50mph. This has been sufficient to bring down trees in a few locations.
Blinding rain, high winds, and water on the roadways will make travel difficult as the line moves further into the eastern portions of the Tennessee Valley..
