No significant threats in sight.
We should see scattered showers and t-storms today, followed by a much nicer Sunday and Monday. A storm or two could be strong today. We could still squeeze out an isolated shower or storm on Sunday, but most of you should stay dry.
Our next best chance of rain should hold off until around mid-week.
The latest tornado research suggests that a tornado’s circulation may actually begin at the ground and work its way up to the cloud. For years, storm chasers have noted small-scale circulations present in their vicinity long before a tornado developed. Even more accepted is the idea that the circulation within the clouds meets up with circulations present on the ground to form a tornado.
On this day in 1976, Crossville recorded a new record low for the month of May when the morning temp dropped to 27 degrees. Even Nashville was just 34 frosty degrees.
