Severe Update: Slight Risk issued for Northern and Eastern TN

The first image is from the SPC and it has the latest Convective Outlook which now includes areas in northern and eastern TN and the main risk with these storms will be damaging winds.

The second image is from the NWS in Nashville, which says that areas north of I-40 have a slight risk at severe storms, while the rest of the Mid. state will just have strong storms that still could produce wind gust in the 40 mph range.

* There's a Severe T'storm Watch just to the northeast of Nashville in South Central KY til 5 p.m. today.

I'll have more updates as needed. Please check back in for the latest reports and information here at my blog. Thanks for visiting and I would love to hear any comments you may have!

I wonder why the stretched the outlook down into TN? Very unusual from the SPC!

I believe they think that we will see some showers pop up soon (and it looks like they may be starting to happen in South Central KY) and they will grow in strength as they move eastward and could cause some damaging winds. I think that's the only reason.
