The Storm Prediction Center has updated the severe weather outlook for this afternoon and early evening.
The slight risk area has been extended north to just south of Huntsville, and a bit further to the east.
A marginal risk surrounds the slight risk zone…and this includes much of Alabama.
Data indicates the greatest severe thunderstorm and tornado potential evolving in southern and eastern portions of Mississippi. This area is expected to move eastward into far western Alabama this afternoon.
This is where an upgrade to enhanced severe risk has been included to account for a greater tornado potential in the enhanced zone.
