The summer stationary front that has been sagging north and south this week will sag further south again today. This will lead to scattered showers and storms, especially by the afternoon. So far this week, we’ve seen storms struggle to get to the plateau. The unsettled pattern will be with us for the next several days, with scattered showers and storms being the norm.

SPC T-storm Outlook for Today
The severe weather threat is low but not zero today. At the making of this map, the SPC has us in between gaps of the marginal risk for severe storms. I wouldn’t be surprised to see that gap filled in later today.
Severe Weather Safety Tips
HRRR Radar Model
This radar simulation runs from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. today. This model has performed very well over the past few days.
The drought monitor is updated each Thursday. This week’s map shows worsening drought conditions in West TN and improving conditions in Middle and East TN. After the rains that are coming over the next several days, all areas should improve. More drought info can always be found at my tab at https://meteorologistmark.com/drought-info/.
