WHAT: A strong or severe storm or two across the plateau
WHEN: This afternoon/evening. The threat should end after dark.
The Storm Prediction Center just updated the thunderstorm outlook for today and we remain in the marginal risk for severe storms. The slight risk that was in effect for extreme southern Middle TN and northern Alabama has been dropped. That was the closest slight risk area to us.
We remain in the threat for a damaging wind gust with any storm. The tornado threat is extremely low.
Any storm that develops will also have the potential to produce very heavy rainfall, which could lead to localized flash flooding.
I’ll keep an eye on the radar but I don’t foresee significant issues, and I certainly don’t anticipate widespread severe weather. Still, just be a bit weather-aware if you’re out and about.
My concern level remains low.
