On this date in 2004, I was married to my beautiful wife and after seven years of marriage, we are looking forward to the next bunch of years raising our kids and growing old together! Today's weather post headline has to do with the weather and not us! Love you wifey!
Most of you across the Highlands of Tennessee are waking up to rain falling this morning. Right now, there doesn't appear (at 9 am) to much in the way of lightning, however that will change as we transition into the afternoon hours when another round of rain and storms will move into our area. Current indications are that we'll see a slight risk for severe thunderstorms during the afternoon hours and our greatest threat is for damaging winds and large hail. The National Weather Service says reports from trained spotters may be needed.
WHAT CONSTITUTES SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS:
The reporting criteria for severe thunderstorms is the following: Tornado, Funnel Cloud, Flooding, Hail (greater than 1/2"), Winds greater than 50 mph that are measured, Structural Damage, and trees or power lines down.
