It was a beautiful spring day, warm and windy. 74 degrees was the high today at Nashville International. With this southerly flow today, the dew point temperatures are on the rise. This will help set the stage for thunderstorms to develop out ahead of a cold front. The front is now producing thunderstorms from Iowa through Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas. On the back side of this system in the cold air snow is falling from the Great Lakes through Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska to Colorado. Several inches are accumulating. Nope, we are not expecting a spring snow, but we will get the thunderstorms.
Paul did a great job of laying out the scenario in his blog this morning click here.
The outlook is still the same a 4WARN Weather Alert is in effect for Middle Tennessee tomorrow. We are expect thunderstorms mid-day. Some of those storms could be strong to severe. We remain in a slight risk zone for severe potential as outlined by the Storm Prediction Center. This is a 2 on a 1-5 scale. The greatest threat will come from damaging wind. We can not rule out tornadoes, but they will be isolated. No need to panic, just be weather aware tomorrow.
The 4WARN Weather Team will keep you updated on TV, at wsmv.com and with our weather App.
