MM’s Sunday Wx Forecast for May 22

“It’s when we start working together that the real healing takes place… it’s when we start spilling our sweat, and not our blood,” David Hume.

This Week’s Hazards

Even with increased rain and storm chances coming, the risk for severe weather looks very low for the next week! Just keep in mind that any storm that forms this time of year can contain heavy rainfall, small hail, gusty winds, and deadly cloud-to-ground lightning.

HRRR Radar Model

The time for this simulation runs from 9:00 a.m. today to 3:00 p.m. this evening. Notice we should stay rather dry, for the most part, until showers and storms begin firing off this afternoon. I’d make sure to keep an umbrella handy throughout the day.

Extended Forecast

Sunday – Monday: Rain and thunderstorms likely.

Tuesday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Wednesday – Thursday: Showers and thunderstorms likely.

Friday: Partly cloudy and pleasant.

Seven-Day Rainfall (New!)

This is the anticipated rainfall for the week, as forecast by the computer models. It looks like a healthy drink of water is coming to much of the state over the next week. The heaviest rains are expected to stay to just to our west and south (red-shaded regions).

Saturday Evening Weather Update

Many of you may have seen the storms across West TN and perhaps worried about their impact here. The atmosphere over that part of the state is more unstable than the atmosphere here is. The threat for severe weather here continues to look very low for tonight.

The storms to our west are now moving into Nashville and weakening as they do so.

Nevertheless, any storm that does develop overnight or on Sunday could contain gusty winds, heavy rainfall, and dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning. Widespread severe weather is not expected.

The Storm Prediction Center does not have our area outlined in any severe weather threat and they don’t expect to issues any watches.
