Current Observations and Radar (trying something new)
Tonight – Clearing Out?
This afternoon’s storms continue to fizzle off. They were pretty mad.

Will it clear out for tonight? Yeah, probably. The good news is that this afternoon’s storms sponged up all the available moisture, and wrung it out on our heads.
However, a “cold pool aloft” will be hanging around, so we can’t completely eliminate our rain/storm chances.
We also need to watch that swirly thing (“meso convective vorticity center”) moving out of southern Indiana:
However, NWS-Nashville things that thing will go west of us.
All in all, feeling pretty good about being outside tonight.
Sunday – Same Set-Up, Same Uncertainty as Today – High 89°
The upper level energy will be available, there will be plenty of humidity/moisture, but very little/no low level storm making dynamics. It’s like the car is sitting in the driveway, with a full tank of gas, but we can’t say if anyone’s getting inside to take it for a spin.
Best chances for rain will still be mid/late afternoon, but if you need more information certainty, I refer you to the above GIF.
