NWS: We May Have Severe Weather (A Few Tornadoes?) Thursday

During the afternoon discussion about Thursday’s storm potential, our NWS said:

THE SETUP LOOKS LIKE A QLCS EVENT FOR MID TN WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR A FEW 
TORNADOES. THERE ARE STILL A LOT OF UNCERTAINTIES REGARDING TIMING AND 
DETAILS...SO PLEASE MONITOR UPDATED FORECASTS AND OUR HAZARDOUS WEATHER 
OUTLOOK CLOSELY OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS.

This means we think there will be a squall line – with the potential for a few tornadoes – either (1) early Thursday morning or (2) Thursday afternoon. (QLCS is weather-speak for Quasi Linear Convective System, best referred to as a squall line).

(1)   The American (GFS) model gives us a 7am Thursday ETA:

(2)   The European model gives us a 1pm Thursday ETA:

Euro Hope

There are real uncertainties about the timing and nature of these storms. Monitor reliable weather sources this week as the picture becomes clearer and more details are evident.

I’ll let the NWS break the good news to you:

THE GOOD NEWS IN THE EXTENDED FORECAST IS THAT VERY NICE WEATHER IS EXPECTED 
AGAIN NEXT WEEKEND.
