Fox6 Chief Meteorologist J-P Dice says a line of thunderstorms is weakening, but that does not mean the severe weather threat has passed.
According to Dice, the worst of the weather has tracked into Tennessee in the Nashville area. The environment in Alabama remains unstable with a fair amount of wind shear and Dice believes an isolated spin-up tornado could pop up. The threat from the system remains straight-line winds. Currently, winds around 50 mph have been seen.
An area to the southwest of the storms appears to have some cells with potential for spin-up tornadoes. The Fox6 StormWarn team says they have seen a large amount of cloud to ground lightning that could strengthen into severe thunder storms.
