Storms are developing today across the Tennessee River Valley and mid-Mississippi River Valley. Some storms will reach severe criteria, with 1″ hail and 58+ mph gusts possible.
We are anticipating a few strong and severe thunderstorms through the afternoon and evening. Heavy rain will be our primary threat with any thunderstorm, but we could also have a few pockets of gusty winds and small hail.
Storms will continue into the first part of the evening hours with a few storms surviving into the overnight, but our severe weather potential will diminish after dark.
We have the potential for 2-4″ of rain across west Tennessee and the mid-Mississippi River Valley through the end of the week. Watch out around rivers and creeks, along with low-lying areas for ponding and flooding.
We have the potential for flooding across the mid-Mississippi river valley through the end of the week. The compiled days of heavy rain will amplify our flooding concern.
