10:50 weather update

This early batch of storms fired up as a result of outflow boundaries from the storms in Kentucky. These are the ones that were just developing when I wrote the morning blog. The storms capable of severe weather will come this afternoon and evening. Anytime we’re this warm and humid, it doesn’t take much to set off a storm. This line is moving east.

More outflow boundaries are lying across Middle TN and a storm could fire off one of those at any time. Right now, the atmosphere isn’t quite primed to handle severe storms, but that will likely change later this evening. Hopefully, this morning storm action will calm the atmosphere down a bit and keep these storms on the tamer side of things.

I noticed something this morning that I wanted to share with you. The NWS tries to remind us that if we hear thunder roar we should go indoors. I noticed a strike on radar this morning that was far removed from the storms across the northern plateau. That is definitely  a good reminder of how far away from the storm that lightning can strike.

It looks like storms will be firing off an on the rest of the day, with the greatest risk of severe weather coming later this evening.
