  Southern and central Alabama
  Southwestern Georgia
  Western Florida panhandle
  Southern and central Mississippi

* SUMMARY...
  Severe thunderstorms remain possible across parts of the
  Southeast late this afternoon, and are expected to develop
  across parts of the lower Mississippi Valley into the Southeast
  this evening through the overnight hours. This includes a risk

  portions of the Florida Panhandle, into southwestern Georgia.

Preparedness actions...

Review your severe weather safety procedures for the possibility
of dangerous weather today. Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio,
weather.gov, or other media for watches and warnings. A tornado
watch means that conditions are favorable for tornadoes to form
during the next several hours. If a tornado warning is issued for
your area, move to a place of safety, ideally in a basement or
interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy building.
