Tuesday Lunch-Hour Wx Update

Strong to severe storms are still expected today across parts of the Deep South and Lower Mississippi River Valley. The greatest concentration of severe storms is expected across Mississippi, where a significant severe weather threat exist today.

As we get later into today, storms will move east and weaken. That is good news for us! We still can’t rule out a strong storm or two overnight, but our overall severe threat looks low. That threat increases as you get closer to Nashville and across West TN. Our atmosphere will MUCH more stable than theirs overnight.

With different rounds of showers and storms, our threat will be with us through the night, as it looks right now. If that changes I’ll certainly let you know.

Winds will pick up here as we go through the day. Be aware that wind gust could reach 20-25 mph. Overnight, gusts could top 35 mph. Secure any loose outdoor objects, such as holiday decorations. These types of winds can also cause sporadic power outages.

We remain in the marginal risk for severe storms, which is the lowest of the five severe weather risk categories. Our threat is very low, but not zero. Nevertheless, we’ll be weather aware overnight. Make sure your weather radios are turned on, just in case. You can also download the Cumberland County EMA app in the app store for your phone.

The greatest threat is across Mississippi.

I’ll continue to monitor this closely and let you know if there’s anything you need to know about.
