Rita throws a tantrum

Alabama is getting hit by a rash of tornadoes today from the remnants of Hurricane Rita, which is now just a low pressure system.

Earlier today, we were outlooked by the Storm Prediction Center for a minor risk of severe weather, but our local weather forecasters have been on the air in wall-to-wall severe weather coverage since at least 3 p.m. CDT today.

A Tornado Watch for the Birmingham area, which originally was to expire at 7 p.m., has been extended to 1 a.m. Monday.

At least we're getting some much-needed rain!!

Hope Rita isn't too yucko for you. Was worse for us to wait for her; her actual performance was much less than expected, oh Thank God. Good luck.

Blogrolled you also.
