Storms are currently pushing across the plateau and they remain below severe limits. Storms are now moving into the Cookeville and Livingston areas. The tornado watch for parts of southern Middle Tennessee is being chipped away.
Pictured below is the current radar, with the borders of Cumberland and Fentress Counties highlighted for reference.
There have been some severe t-storm warnings around our region but none within our region. That is unlikely to change. Even where the environment is better conducive for severe storms, those storms are struggling. We just don’t have the atmospheric support necessary for widespread severe storms.
Never the less, I’ll keep an eye on these as the push across the plateau. It had looked like they would be out of here by 10:00 but storms aren’t progressing as quickly as I would have liked.
Again, storms are struggling and even if we do get a severe storm it should be short-lived and pose a damaging wind gust threat, at most.
I’ll keep an eye on things and let you know when I feel like the threat has completely exited our region.
