   Areas affected...Central/South-central Alabama

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 45...

   Valid 112220Z - 112315Z

   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
