The Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been canceled for the Tennessee Valley, as the storms have cleared the region. MUCH colder weather is following this cold front. Temperatures have dropped almost 30 degrees since mid-afternoon in Northwest Alabama and Southern Tennessee as of 9 PM.
We have received several reports of hail from the storms: mainly in Lawrence and Morgan Counties where the most intense storms of the evening passed. There was also one unconfirmed report of some damage to an outbuilding and some power lines in the Hartselle area.
The wind has kicked up up as well: gusts as high as 40 mph from the northwest through 6 AM. That will drive the ‘feels like’ temperature down into the 20s by morning!
It stays cold Thursday: ‘feels like’ around 32-39ºF for most of the afternoon, some sun, a blustery northwest wind, and an actual high only around 40-45ºF. Look for a freeze by Friday morning, then it warms up again for the weekend.
