On May 17th, heavy rainfall with some strong and isolated severe storms occurred as a Mesoscale Convective Complex pushed from Mississippi into Northern Alabama and Southern Middle Tennessee. The area of showers and storms moved into northwestern Alabama around 10 AM and a few of the storms intensified as it tracked eastward through the early afternoon hours. The strongest storm of the day produced two tornadoes that briefly touched down, one in the Athens area and another near Elkmont.
Today there was a report of a tornado on the ground in Athens, AL moving north east towards Ardmore, AL NWS hasn't said yet if it was really one or just a real low Wall Cloud.
Here is the radar image.
Here is the youtube video of the tornado/wall cloud.
