Discussion

A very active day and night is coming to the Tennessee Valley with the chance of numerous severe thunderstorms containing damaging wind gusts and heavy rainfall. In addition to the threat of damaging winds and heavy rain, hail and even isolated tornadoes are on the table from later this morning through the evening hours. The unsettled weather is being caused in part by a very strong upper-level low pressure system that is now moving east from the middle of the country. Strong surface low pressure will develop over the OK/TX Panhandles later today as this upper-level feature passes overhead. Southwesterly flow aloft in this area will increase moisture levels and – as a warm front pushes to the north – showers and thunderstorms are likely to break out in the Tennessee Valley and they may come in three different waves.

Round 1 may take place in the morning hours as a warm front pushes northward through the region. Later today and following the passage of the warm front, round 2 will take place with scattered convection in a warm and humid air mass. Finally, another line of storms can develop tonight ahead of an advancing cold frontal system. The bottom line…all of northern Alabama and southern Tennessee needs to prepare for the potential of numerous severe storms through the day and evening hours.
