Storms Tonight; But Should Weaken Before Arrival

Posted:

Wednesday Evening:  The line of t'storms headed our way has prompted a Tornado Watch for WEST TENNESSEE, but here in Middle Tennessee we expect the storms to weaken somewhat before they arrive.

The Storm Prediction Center has the severe storm potential west of the Tennessee River as you can see.

Why?

Check out the dew point map.

Nashville and Middle Tennessee's dew points are remaining in the 40s during the evening hours.  Notice Memphis' dew point is in the low 60s.

Our air is too dry to support the severe weather and our dew points will likely only rebound into the low 50s just ahead of the storms.  However, the 60 degree dew points in West Tennessee can support the severe weather.

WE STILL EXPECT LIGHTNING & THUNDER, AND THE WINDS ARE GUSTING TO 25 MPH AHEAD OF THE STORMS, BUT THE REAL SEVERE WEATHER SHOULD STAY TO OUR WEST.

P.S.  Cooler temps will push in for Thursday and Friday with continued breezy conditions.  A gradual warm up is expected over the weekend.  See www.wkrn.com for the 7 Day Forecast and Join us on News 2 @ 10pm for the latest.
