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.
