Radar Update – 9:30PM
A second, more vigorous round of thunderstorms is moving across the Tennessee Valley. The individual storms within this semi-organized line are moving northeast while the entire line progresses due east at 30mph. Heavy rain and lightning are the main threats, but there remains a very small threat for isolated strong winds.
We’ve been watching these storms closely over the past few hours because of the combination of high wind shear and a small amount of instability causing a few cells showing weak rotation. There’s even been a report of a tornado in Monroe County, Mississippi with some structural damage, but it does appear this exact right combination of shear and instability was located just south of the Tennessee Valley and our chances for any type of severe weather is marginal.
A cold-front will move through the area over the next few hours, bringing an end to the rain in the Valley and setting us up for a pleasant mostly sunny Monday.
