Severe thunderstorm watch issued for Jefferson County

Here we go again.

A line of severe thunderstorms is moving into Alabama from Mississippi, and that's prompted the National Weather Service to issue s severe thunderstorm watch for much of west and central Alabama, including Jefferson County, until 1 a.m. Wednesday.

This watch comes on the heels of a tornado watch that's been issued for most of northwest Alabama, including Walker and Cullman counties.

Blount County is not currently included in either watch, but as we've seen before, that can change on a moment's notice.

A 5:30 p.m., NWS radar out of Jackson, Miss. showed a long line of severe thunderstorms stretching along the Interstate 55 corridor, from Brookhaven northward to New Albany. A tornado warning was in effect for the northern end of the line.

The storm system is moving east northeast, and the front edge is expected to reach the Alabama state line as early as 7 p.m.

Storms in this line could produce high winds, damaging hail, intense lightning and heavy rain.

This is a developing story; we'll have updates through the night.
