Severe Storms Potential

Good afternoon, everyone. We have a very active few days ahead of us, with an increasing threat for a severe weather outbreak across our region. A mega-temperature swing will help fuel some nasty thunderstorms, that can cause a lot of issues through Tuesday night.

While the main severe threat comes Tuesday afternoon and evening, I’m going to be watching some thunderstorms developing later tonight and early Tuesday. These will be along a warm front lifting northward through the state. Large hail producing storms may accompany this front. The SPC may have to extend the risk deeper into the state…

Warm, moist and unstable air comes in for Tuesday. Temps may make a run at 80 degrees on a strong southwesterly wind flow. This is ahead of a major cold front that will drop temps into the low 30s by Wednesday morning. A squall line of severe thunderstorms will develop along the front and roll quickly across the state.

Here’s the latest risk area from the Storm Prediction Center..

Check out the late night storms and the squall line on the future radar from the Hi Res NAM…

I will have the latest on WKYT-TV starting at 4pm and will have another KWC update this evening. Make it a good one and take care.

    Main event looks to be where it typically is with these cold fronts..Southern Half of Tennessee and Northern Half of Mississippi and Alabama..

    As cool as April is shaping up thus far, I somehow think when true Spring kicks in, it will feel more like Summer, perhaps drier.
