0100 PM CST Sun Mar 03 2019
Areas affected...east-central AL
Concerning...Tornado Watch 7...
Valid 031900Z - 031930Z
The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 7 continues.
SUMMARY...Strong tornado potential appears to be maximizing over
east-central AL through 3pm CST.
DISCUSSION...A mature supercell located near Montgomery is favorably
located within a region of maximized surface pressure falls (3-4mb
per 2 hours) immediately east/southeast of the surface low. KMXX
VAD shows 500 m2/s2 0-1km SRH when accounting for the observed
Montgomery County supercell's storm motion. Given the ample
buoyancy and intense shear profile in place, it appears
tornadogenesis will likely occur within the next 30-60 minutes with
the possibility of a strong tornado occurring.
