Tornado Watch Issued For Parts Of West Tennessee

Weather Update 6:30 p.m. Tuesday

A Tornado Watch has been issued for Crockett, Dyer, Gibson, Haywood, Henry, Lake, Lauderdale, Obion, Shelby, Tipton, Weakley, Tipton, and Weakley counties until 8 p.m. Tuesday.

We’re contining to monitor the latest across West Tennessee. Temperatures have managed to climb into the upper 70s to a few 80s this afternoon. This is leading to a moderately unstable air mass especially in the Watch area at this time.  The main cold front is still well off to the west of West Tennessee, however there is a chance that a few isolated supercells could develop well ahead of the main line, if that is the case there is a chance we’ll have a few tornadoes this afternoon before the main event. The main line appears to be still on time and is expected to arrive in West Tennessee by 6~7:00 PM then exit eastern counties by 10:00 PM ending the main severe threat for the area…
