23 December 2015 - Day1 Convective Outook

...SUMMARY...
AN OUTBREAK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS AND TORNADOES IS FORECAST TODAY INTO TONIGHT FROM THE OHIO VALLEY INTO THE TENNESSEE AND LOWER MISSISSIPPI VALLEYS.

Severe thunderstorms have already caused structural damage and destroyed homes this morning in Arkansas, and the threat will only increase and become more widespread in parts of the South and Ohio Valley through this afternoon as a likely tornado outbreak gets underway.

The Tornado Conditions Index, better known as TOR:CON, has been raised to as high as 8 out of 10 for parts of west Tennessee, northern Mississippi and northern Alabama on Wednesday, meaning there's a 80 percent chance of a tornado within 50 miles of any location in the indicated area. Tornadoes and damaging winds will also be possible in a much larger area from the Gulf Coast to the Ohio Valley. This includes TOR:CON values as high as 7 in eastern Arkansas, 6 in west Kentucky and south Mississippi, and 5 in southeast Missouri and northeast Louisiana.

This is a developing situation, so as always - be sure to stay up to date on any watches and/or warnings if you live in these areas.

This is a rather precarious event, being so close to Christmas
- so all the best to those at the mercy of Nature.

Tornado Warnings and Watches are already in effect.

Updates and more links will follow. Be safe.

I`m just SW of Little Rock. The dew point just started dropping, so I think this area is just about done with the threat.

We had some minor flooding, and lots of hail, but wind didn`t get over 35mph sustained here. Gusts not much higher than that.

There are power outages in many areas....www.etrviewoutage.com...

Just a report from this part of AR.


Stay safe!!!!

Have seen several tornado warning scroll across my twitter feed. The "target" keeps shifting east. Knoxville is now in the "damage likely" zone. West of Knoxville is the worst in Tennessee with a torcon of 8.

Hate to see damaging weather anytime, but especially like this, just before Christmas. Could be a lot of disappointed kids in a couple days.

The "watch" area is quite large IMO.

NWS

I just used Memphis as reference.



The predicted timing for my neighbors. Hopefully everyone can get home and settled in before the BIG stuff comes. If at all!
edit on 23-12-2015 by TNMockingbird because: more specific


I've been keeping an eye on this chart as well since early morning...



The damaging wind and tornado threat has increased.
The damaging wind was about 1/2 way.
The tornado was barely in the yellow.
Earlier...be vigilant!
