Saturday Afternoon Storm Update

WHAT: Strong to severe t-storms and heavy rainfall

WHEN: Mainly Sunday afternoon and evening

The Storm Prediction Center has just updated their storm outlook for tomorrow and little has changed for us since this morning’s update. There continues to be a risk for strong to severe storms, mainly Sunday afternoon and into the evening. All modes of severe weather will be possible.

The greatest risk is for Mississippi and Alabama, where a significant severe weather outbreak is expected. If you know anyone down there make sure they are paying attention to the weather tomorrow.

Heavy rainfall could be a problem for us too. Some guidance suggests up to 5 inches of rain for the plateau, though I’m more comfortable with forecasting 2-4 inches at this point.

Just review your severe weather safety plan. We’ve been through this many times already this spring. And, as always, prepare for power outages.

The greatest threats continue to look to be to our southwest. There is a very high level of concern for our neighbors in Mississippi and Alabama, perhaps even southern Middle TN. I’m worried we’ll see terrible tornadoes down there tomorrow.

As for us, our atmosphere will become unstable but we won’t be nearly as unstable as folks to our south. With that being said, review those severe weather plans and be ready for some storms.

The Storm Prediction Center continues to have the entire Cumberland Plateau in the ENHANCED RISK for severe storms.

My level of concern remains unchanged since Friday night’s update. That’s a good thing!

I’ll keep monitoring the situation and I’ll bring you another update later on this evening. You all have a great Saturday. Think of me while I’m battling brier bushes, etc.  while cleaning out my fence row! So far, I’m winning…..I think..(ha)
