Here are some of the warning I'm seeing this morning.

Today's Tornado Onslaught Centers on Tennessee Valley
Tornadoes today, however, will be most numerous and strongest from the midday hours to this evening. meteorologists are especially worried about the corridor from northern Mississippi and northern Alabama to extreme southeastern Kentucky. source

Hopefully the weather will improve in northern Kentucky after that line moves through.

Tornado warning is now issued for northern Mississippi. It's going to be a long day for those in mid and eastern Tennessee.

Its supposed to quiet down until after 2pm this afternoon, then we are going to be under the gun again according to the local weather.

Unfortunately, late afternoon and evening storms tend to get more severe due to afternoon heating. The storms in northern Mississippi are moving to the east northeast, I don't know if they will reach northern Kentucky but definately should reach the middle and eastern parts of Kentucky. But there is the possibility that during the day they will grow larger and more intense and anything can happen. I wish the energy in the atomosphere would just die down, but that doesn't look like it will happen.

There is now another tornado warning for the Memphis area for southern Shelby Co and northern Mississippi.

posted on Apr, 27 2011 @ 11:18 AM
The sirens are going off again here for Shelby County, TN.
This is exhausting and nerve breaking. My son is in this southern part of the county where the sighting was located. I almost prefer tornados at night, so at least my little one are with me.

Keep safe everyone!

WARNING from my e-mail inbox just now

National Weather Service issues "dangerous situation" tornado watch for parts of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi.

A "particularly dangerous situation watch" is issued when there is a high risk of multiple strong tornadoes.

Alabama is under the gun today - severe thunderstorms and tornado watch thru midnight today. I'm originally from the hwy 280/north shelby county area of Alabama and have family & friends in this area so it's of particular interest to me.
View of Hwy 280 this morning after 1st wave of storms passed thru (there's always LOTS of heavy traffic on this road, but doesn't typically look like a parking lot). Praying for Alabama!

Stay safe everyone - here we go again.
Thanks for the updates - we have faired
pretty well this last time - we have more
rain than anything - flash flooding.
Is this unusual or what - I don't recall
last spring being this active at this time,
not to mention the same locations over
and over.

Currently in Ohio (Toledo to be exact) and went from a watch to a warning at around 11:30 to about noon. Not really stormy now just very windy and supposed to have more storms later in the evening. I must say this has been a rather eventful finals week.

Same here, trying to study for finals with the tornado sirens going off for the last 2 days and almost 24 hour coverage on tv by our weathermen has been a challange.

At least here in Memphis, its quieted down now andit looks like it might stay that way.

Prayers for everyone that are to my's been nerve wracking to say the least here in Memphis. Everyone stay safe!

Btw, I do remember last year at this time we had 4 days of constant tornado outbreaks, torential rains and flooding, it was the first weekend in May (it was the Memphis in May weekend). I remember this because I had finals at this same time last year and was under the same stress from the weather, my neighborhood flooded and many neighbors had water in their homes and had to evacuate. Thankfully our house stayed dry.

Thanks everybody for the input, getting myself prepared for this baby now. In Montgomery, AL at the moment, everybody be safe.

Anybody know the chances of a tornado occurring?

Hi all.... I sure hope that folks down south stay safe, I have family down that way so I'm watching that area with extreme interest. This weather is worrisome to say the least. Just wanted to throw this out there simply because for this area it is a little odd. Western NY is under a tornado watch until 10PM this evening. Tornadoes happen here, just not that often. I'm sitting here watching the clouds thicken and the heat and humidity increase. Lovely!!

Here is the weather channel's alert for the tornado watch. Western NY Tornado Watch Link
