Spring season has barely started and we got a good taste of spring thunderstorms. Storms rolled in this afternoon as expected. Most of the severe storms tracked mainly south of I-40. There were numerous reports of wind damage and large hail. Check out all the reports on the radar map.
Some of the hail was the size of golf balls, many of those reports came from Lewisburg.
There is another band of rain and a few thunderstorms moving through extreme southwest Kentucky. It looks like most of that weather will be directed into West Tennessee where the Storm Prediction Center has posted a Marginal Risk Zone for severe weather, that’s a 1 on a 1 to 5 scale. Here is one model depiction…not very impressive, but I don’t want to rule out a few thunderstorms.
The winds have kicked around to the north now and cooler air is moving in. By morning temperatures will be in the 40s for most spots.
Wednesday will be cooler with some afternoon clearing. Thursday and Friday will be beautiful with temperatures rising. Saturday another round of thunderstorms is likely.
With that in mind, I invite you to one of our Surviving the Storm programs this spring. This is our weather safety program that helps prepare you and your family for severe weather. We’ll play some games, do some experiments and give away some prizes. And of course, Snowbird will be there.
I’ll have a weather update on Channel 4 News at 10pm.
