Calm After the Storm

Wow, that was quite a storm event yesterday, and I missed the whole thing.  I returned late last night from vacation, but I was watching the radar and seeing the storm reports as I was making my way back home. So far the National Weather Service has confirmed two tornadoes.  One an EF1 in Lewis County where the NWS says it started on Old Hohenwald Road then crossed highway 412.  The tornado finally weakened and lifted just north of Hohenwald. Most of the damage was to trees and there was some minor roof damage.

The other tornado as an EF1 near Decaturville with winds of 100-110mph.

Today was the calm after the storm.  There’s a nice spring night ahead.  Some clearing will take place so you should be able to see the International Space Station fly over.  It will pass at 8:06pm, lasting 6 minutes, appearing in the WSW sky and disappear in the NE sky.  The maximum height will be 57 degrees.  It will appear as a blinking light moving rapidly across the sky.

Tomorrow the clouds start to return, but with a southerly wind it will be warmer.  We could pick up a shower or two in the late afternoon. By Thursday a system that is now in the southern plains will move toward us bringing a risk of more severe thunderstorms.  At this time it looks like the greatest threat will be high wind and hail.  We have issued a 4WARN Weather Alert for threat, so be weather aware.

A few showers may linger into Friday.  The weekend looks fantastic with sunshine and warm temperatures.
