A tornado warning continues until 5:45 p.m. for Houston County.

As of 5:30 p.m. the storm was located about 9 miles southeast of Ashford and was moving east at 45 mph.

A tornado watch continues for southeast Alabama on Sunday evening, but has been trimmed back to include only one Alabama county as of 5:15 p.m.

Houston County is the only county in Alabama left in the tornado watch, which will be in effect until 7 p.m. CST.

An earlier watch for more of Alabama has been canceled.

There is an enhanced risk for severe storms across parts of south Alabama today.

An enhanced risk is level 3 out of 5 in the Storm Prediction Center’s risk categories.

Areas in the enhanced risk area could experience numerous severe storms, and a few could be especially intense.

There will be a risk of strong to severe storms across all of southwest Alabama today, according to the National Weather Service in Mobile.

The best chances of severe storms will be in the orange shaded areas to the north and east of the coast.

Scattered to numerous storms will be possible from this morning through the afternoon. However, forecasters said storm activity could peak in the noon to 4 p.m. timeframe.

The weather service said damaging wind gusts will be the main concern, but tornadoes and hail will also be possible today.

Forecasters will be watching for a line of storms to develop and track across the region. But they will also be on the lookout for supercells that could develop ahead of the line. Those will bring the potential for tornadoes.
