Better for Tornado Alley, but far worse for Mississippi and Alabama:
Wow. Extremely high risk for Birmingham and northern Alabama.
Reports of very strong wind shear aloft; that's condusive to tornado generation.
There are already seven (7) tornado reports along the Alabama/Tennessee border, and we're just getting started.
Keep your heads down back there. You're in for a long day.
