The Potential For Strong/Severe Storms Continues

We continue to have the potential for a few strong to severe storms mainly for locations along and north of the I-59 corridor. Storms are starting to become in more of broken line segments instead of one main squall line. This will make isolated damaging wind gusts up to 60 MPH the main threat, especially in supercellular storms. We still can’t rule out a brief tornado, so stay weather aware.

Here is the text from the latest Mesoscale Discussion from the Storm Prediction Center:

SUMMARY…
The severe threat will shift east across Tornado Watches 74 & 75.

DISCUSSION…
Broken band of convection continues to shift east at roughly 35kt across Middle TN late this evening, although thunderstorms are moving a bit slower along the southern portions of the line extending into the lower MS Valley. While deep-layer flow continues to support organized rotating updrafts, broken line segments are becoming more common and locally damaging winds should be the main severe threat as convection moves east. Even so, some tornado threat remains, especially with supercell structures.
