The Storm Prediction Center issued a Tornado Watch for the Tennessee Valley until 7 am Saturday morning. This replaced the ‘Particularly Dangerous Situation (PDS) Tornado Watch issued Friday evening for parts of the area.

The Tornado Watch was canceled for all counties in North Alabama along with all counties in southern middle Tennessee as of 5:21 a.m.

Stay alert to changing weather conditions and ensure you have multiple ways to get warnings. Do not rely solely on outdoor sirens as they are meant to be heard outdoors. Mobile homes are not safe in tornadoes. Please have a plan in place to seek sturdy shelter before a warning is issued. A Watch means that conditions are favorable for a tornado to form. Stay with the Weather Authority as we track this system.
