Severe Weather Threat Continues For Southwest Alabama

The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 684 continues.

The tornado threat has increased over the past hour with confirmed tornado reports in Mobile County. A favorable downstream environment will continue to support a tornado threat.

A line of supercells in far southwestern Alabama has exhibited stronger low-level rotation and at least a few confirmed tornadoes over the past 30 minutes. This is likely due to an increasingly favorable low-level environment as MLCAPE has increased to around 1500 J/kg per RAP mesoanalysis. In addition, the MOB VWP shows around 300 m2/s2 of 0-1 SRH and shows 1 km flow has increased from around 35 knots to 45 knots in the past 1 to 1.5 hours. This favorable environment is expected to persist into the evening hours as these storms slowly move east and new storms develop within the warm sector.
