Here's the storm reports that the SPC received yesterday from around the country and the southeast was roughed up a bit yesterday with hail and wind reports. This is probably what the report maps will look like for the southeast the next couple of days as we issue some scattered storm chances ( All from daytime heating), which some of the bigger storms will have damaging winds, large hail, and frequent lightning, through Friday and Saturday when a bigger and actually system comes in. Here's the forecasted high's for today, and the storm chances we shall, in most areas, all see.
Nashville: mid to upper 80's; 40% chance
Clarksville: mid to upper 80's; 40% chance
Cookeville: LOW 80's!; 50% chance
Columbia: upper 80's; 40% chance
Manchester: upper 80's; 50% chance
The surprise I was mentioning was that I'm bringing in a new blog poster to the Highland Rim blog. His name is Matt Brawner and he is a teenage weather fanatic like me and he lives about 20 minutes from me, so he will be good at forecasting Mid. TN weather too. He should start soon, and we'll get a schedule setup and tell ya'll when to expect my forecast, and his.
