Afternoon Storms Could Turn For The Worst...

Posted: Updated:


Today we must brace for severe weather, most likely during the afternoon hours. A line of storms is moving just ahead of a fast approaching cold front that caused heavy downpours in Louisiana and frequent lightning strikes. Flash flood advisories have already been issued (as of this morning) for the Tennessee / Arkansas / North Mississippi area. Highs are expected to reach into the 80s, setting the stage for plenty of energy to be in place to power up the storms. Winds will accelerate to 35-45 mph when the storms push through.

Tonight some showers will still linger in the state, particularly in the eastern portions of our viewing area and in the state. As the front pushes through a dramatic change in how it feels will occur. MUCH cooler air will be in place with clearing skies; the last of the rain should leave our area by midnight. Winds shifting out of the north west 5-10 mph; temps drop to 50 degrees - a 30 degree drop!

Tomorrow much clearer, but much cooler as well compared to the 80 degree weather of Tuesday afternoon. Expect highs in the mid 60s and winds from the north; the feel in the air will be a significant change of pace. During the evening hours the temps will plummet again, down to the 40s. So a chilly start to Thanksgiving will be followed with plenty of warming sunshine because temps will rebound back to the 70s in the afternoon hours.
