This imagery is generated from the NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory experimental analysis of NEXRAD RADAR on January 30, 2013 around noon Eastern Time, and identifies areas with high rotational velocity that are consistent with tornadic activity. In some cases, high rotational velocity may show up in the radar signature, though a tornado may not touch down. In this case, a strong rotational velocity signature is see moving across Alabama and into northwestern Georgia and crossing Interstate 75 near Adairsville, which is consistent with reports by the NOAA Storm Prediction Center.
