The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 45
SUMMARY...A few strong storms will spread southeast this evening.
Marginally severe hail and gusty winds are the primary threats.
DISCUSSION...Remnants of long-lived MCS have progressed across the
Mid-South region into central Alabama this evening. This cluster of
storms has been supported by a notable short-wave trough that is
digging southeast across TN/northern AL. Buoyancy is somewhat
limited downstream ahead of the short wave so this complex has
gradually weakened over the last few hours. Even so, a few
strong-marginally severe thunderstorms remain possible, especially
along the southwestern flank of the MCS. The greatest risk for
hail/wind should be along a corridor from Hale-Dallas-Lowndes
