The Storm Prediction Center has just issued a severe t-storm watch for portions of West TN. This watch is in effect until 9:00 pm. While this particular watch does not affect the plateau, the NWS Nashville office is right to warn folks to stay abreast of the weather overnight, as more watches will likely be extended eastward with time. Those watches will likely contain warnings for t-storms with damaging winds. There is a tornado threat tonight and tomorrow morning but it is low (but not zero). I’ll keep an eye on it!
On a lighter note, I snapped this picture of a very heavy shower coming into Crossville. This is just another example of the isolated nature of these showers and storms.
