MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The WSFA 12 News weather team says there's still a risk of tornadoes through the night Tuesday with the risk heavily favoring south Alabama.

"This transition in where we're most concerned should not be viewed as justification to sound the all clear. Far from it," according to the updated WSFA weather blog. "We are already seeing multiple rotating storms working ashore from the Gulf. These will threaten our southernmost counties through the night and should be taken seriously."
