This front just does not want to move, folks. It continues to hang out between Nashville and Memphis. Showers out ahead of the front are widely scattered across the mid state this afternoon, and those will increase in coverage as we go through the night. By tomorrow, we should even hear some rumbles of thunder as a disturbance passes nearby. Currently, all the action is focused on eastern Texas, and all that energy is really robbing the rest of the front of active precip. As that energy moves northward, more of that energy will be transferred our direction, increasing our rain chances.
Below are anticipated rainfall totals through Thursday night. The heaviest rain and flooding will stay to our west, but we’ll still get a good soaking on the plateau.
Radar is showing some widely scattered showers developing ahead of the front.
And powerful t-storms are breaking out across eastern Texas, where tornado watches are in effect. The severe wx will stay southwest of the Cumberland Plateau.
You all have a great evening!
