Severe Weather Chances Saturday

(Graphic courtesy of

SIGNIFICANT WEATHER CHANGES AHEAD: Most cloudy today with a 20% chance for showers and a high of 72°. We are looking at our first potential for severe weather on Saturday as a very strong upper-level storm will move in from the southern plains. With large amounts of wind energy and wind shear in the lower levels of the atmosphere, we will have a ripe combination for large hail, damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes. This would be a great time to go out and purchase a NOAA Weather Radio, if you do not have one (see link and image below).

Weather History for This Date
Great one-day rainfall event in April occurs in 1883 as Nashville receives 5.03"

Thank you for all the information you share Michael, my mom and dad live in Cookeville and I am in Chattanooga, there have been times when I would get an alert from you late at night on my droid cell phone and I have called and woke my parents up for them to take cover and get in the basement. I really appreciate all you do. You are my tie to my family far away.
