Severe Weather Chances Ramp Up

The Big Dawg Weather Blog is presented by:

Good Tuesday Afternoon, Folks! I wanted to give everyone an update on what to expect over the next 48 hours, which looks to be a very active period! 

Tonight through Tomorrow Morning

  • Strong south winds 20-30 mph with gusts 40-50 mph this evening
  • Localized gusts above 50 mph possible
  • Timing of highest wind gusts will be from 7 PM EST to 1 AM EST tonight
  • Loose outdoor items will be blown around, and small limbs could fall
  • Isolated power outages possible Travel in high profile vehicles could be difficult, especially on W to E oriented roadways

Wednesday Night through Thursday Morning

The first chance for severe weather comes Wednesday night into early Thursday. Scattered storms will move into our area from western Tennessee. The strongest storms look to remain west of I-65, just out of our immediate area, but strong storms are still possible. Generally, I'm not looking at a significant severe weather risk here, but strong to an isolated severe storm is possible! 

Thursday Afternoon

This is the period that Im watching the most. This setup looked much worse a few days ago, but thankfully things didn't play out as they could have. However, we are still looking at a good chance of severe weather during the afternoon period on Thursday, and we all know how mother nature is; you never know what you will get. So it's essential to be prepared for the worst and hope for the best!

  • Time Period 12PM- 7PM Eastern 
  • All severe hazards are on the table, but main threat is damaging winds and hail

  • Short-Lived Tornadoes are on the table 

  • Gusty winds outside of showers and storms

  • Stay up to date on the latest forecasts

The SPC has placed the entire area in a SLIGHT risk for severe weather, which means that scattered severe storms are possible. 

 


As always, I'll be monitoring things closely! LIVE video is planned for tomorrow (Wednesday, Feb 15th), at 5 PM Central/6 PM Eastern! 
Have a wonderful afternoon, and I'll be chatting with you soon! 

 

 

 

 

All Eyes on Thursday

The Big Dawg Weather Blog is presented by:

Good Saturday afternoon, Folks! I only have a short blog post with a few details, but I want to discuss the potential for severe weather in our area on Thursday. Looking at the data, we will see an area of low pressure bring moisture into the Ohio/Tennessee valleys by Wednesday night, resulting in some gusty winds and storm chances. Thursday is the day I have my eyes on; as a cold front approaches our area, a round of severe weather looks likely across the Mississippi, Ohio, and Tennessee Valleys. All the ingredients necessary for a significant severe weather outbreak will be present; however, there remain questions on the overall setup and track. Once these questions clear up, there will likely be upgrades to the current Storm Prediction Center Outlook that I have posted below.  

SPC Thursday Outlook 

I'll be watching things closely, but in the meantime, don't freak out or start worrying. We are still in "watch and see" mode. The best advice I can give is don't be scared, and be prepared! 
Have a good Saturday, and I could have a LIVE tomorrow or Monday.
