A Meso-low

Earlier this afternoon a severe t-storm warning was issued for northern Fentress County and Pickett Counties. The storms held off long enough around here today to allow more heat and instability to accumulate. This storm became what we refer to as a meso-low. You can clearly see the circulation on radar. These often do not produce tornadoes but they can certainly put down some damaging winds. I’ve seen at least one wind damage report come in from eastern Overton County, where a tree is reported down. Notice the trailing storms that move down into Cumberland County. Drier air is moving in behind this and humidity levels should now begin to drop. Isolated showers will continue into the evening and overnight, with much better weather to come on Sunday.
