Scattered Thunderstorms, Some Strong Increase Tonight

Weather Update – 7:07 PM  Sunday

Tonight: Clouds will continues to increase this evening ahead of a mass of precipitation that is moving north along the Mississippi River. There is a MARGINAL risk for strong to severe storms this evening. However latest 22z soundings still suggest a lot of this will vaporize due to dry in the low levels. So we’ll watch the trend over the next couple hours. It may not be until closer to midnight when the warm front arrives before more robust activity develops tonight.

Overnight and Monday: VIPIRcast still shows a fairly organized wave of convection that develops mainly after midnight and moves east across most of West Tennessee. It may end up being the main event for this round of storms. Main threats with storms overnight into the day time hours on Monday will be the threat of a few pockets of damaging winds and hail. But there will also be very heavy rain and plenty of thunder and lightning to accompany the wave as it moves across.  So you might get an earlier than you would like alarm tomorrow via Mother Nature! The hope is the robust activity going on across Mississippi/Alabama tonight will keep the instability absent which will keep things below severe criteria overnight.
