- It's going to be WINDY, even away from the storms.
- On a 4-point scale of Low, Medium, High, and Extreme threat; most of Region 8 either has a low or medium severe weather threat.
- The main threat from the storms will be straight line winds, but a tornado can not be ruled out.
- This is a fast mover and will not be a prolonged event.
- I'd be surprised if anyone had more than 0.30" of rainfall.
- I expect Region 8 to be completely clear of severe weather by 7:00 PM, if not sooner.
So, let's break it down. This year, the Region 8 Storm TEAM will be using a simple (Low, Medium, High, Extreme) threat map to show where the greatest risks for severe weather will exist. Our goal is to be as clear as possible when it comes to conveying the threat of severe weather to everyone.
Tomorrow, our Eastern counties have the greatest risk of severe weather. This threat continues into TN, KY, AL and MS later in the evening.
That's all I have for now. I'm going to get some rest. Don't forget to follow me on Twitter at @ryanvaughan for more numerous updates.
