Widespread rain and storms are reducing instability for the rest of this afternoon and evening – that’s good news!  Any additional showers and storms will not have the same kind of fuel that these early afternoon ones have used.  The SPC’s latest outlook reflects that idea too – best chance of strong storms pushing east of Alabama and Middle Tennessee this evening.

Jake Reed June 10, 20141:19 pm

The heaviest batch of storms stretches from near Paint Rock and Gurley down to northern Blount County. Storms are moving northeast. Flash flooding potential is elevated in these areas. Here’s the radar as of 1:17 p.m.

Jake Reed June 10, 20141:16 pm

Storms remain below severe limits in the Tennessee Valley as of 1:05 p.m. The heaviest rain was south of Huntsville, and just north of the TN border. Some really heavy storms will be moving into Marshall County shortly.

Classic SLC from Ramona Edwards in Grant; SLC’s are “scary looking clouds” that are caused by condensation occurring very low in the atmosphere.
