Alabama Tornado Warning

NWS office in Mobile just issued a Tornado warning for south central Washington County in Alabama, which is just east of Greene County Mississippi. The variables of instability, wind shear, and moisture are definitely increasing here in South Mississippi. A cold front is pushing through NW MS at this moment, and I am seeing a very strong temperature gradient along the front. Greenville is 48 and Jackson is 72 right now. There is a also a strong line of storms along the cold front to help depict the frontal movement. Current Obs in Hattiesburg: 71 temp/66 dewpoint/Southwest @ 7mph. I'll keep you update as the front continues to move through MS, and, of course, I will be watching our region in front of the cold front for any severe activity. -Tanner Cade
