Sat May 10, 08 - risk of severe storms tonight in Mid-TN
The Storm Prediction Center has designated Mid-TN as 'moderate' for severe weather on Sat, May 10, 08. Probably tonight.
From the SPC:
THE COMBINATION OF THE MODERATE INSTABILITY...40-60 KT OF EFFECTIVE BULK SHEAR AND RELATIVELY STRONG LOW-LEVEL SHEAR INDICATES THE POTENTIAL FOR INTENSE SUPERCELLS CAPABLE OF TORNADOES /SOME SIGNIFICANT/...VERY LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WINDS FOCUSED PRIMARILY ALONG WARM FRONT AND EVENTUALLY ALONG/AHEAD OF DRYLINE.
The severe threat is moreso for AR, and northern MS & AL.
Sounds like fun.
