…POTENTIAL INDEPENDENCE DAY SEVERE WEATHER…

A COLD FRONT IS FORECAST TO MOVE INTO THE MID SOUTH LATE THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH TONIGHT. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL LIKELY DEVELOP ALONG AND AHEAD OF THIS FRONT. SOME OF THESE THUNDERSTORMS MAY BECOME SEVERE WITH DAMAGING WINDS AND LARGE HAIL. ISOLATED TORNADOES WILL BE POSSIBLE.

SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS… SOME OF WHICH COULD CONTAIN SMALL HAIL OR A BRIEF WIND GUST… WILL BE POSSIBLE BEGINNING LATE THIS AFTERNOON. HOWEVER THE PRIMARY AREA OF CONCERN FOR SEVERE WEATHER WILL BE NORTH OF THE MEMPHIS METRO AREA BETWEEN 4 PM AND 10 PM. THESE STORMS WILL PROGRESS SOUTH INTO NORTHERN PARTS OF THE METRO AFTER 9 PM AND INTO NORTH MISSISSIPPI AFTER 11 PM. THE STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO DECREASE SOMEWHAT IN INTENSITY AS THEY PROGRESS SOUTH BUT DAMAGAING WIND AND LARGE HAIL WILL REMAIN A THREAT. AS THE FRONT MOVES SLOWLY SOUTH… STORMS WILL STILL BE POSSIBLE SUNDAY WITH THE PRIMARY SEVERE WEATHER THREAT SHIFTING SOUTH OF THE METRO AREA.

PEOPLE WITH PLANS TO ATTEND OUTDOOR INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATIONS THIS EVENING SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF SEVERE WEATHER… PARTICULARLY LATE IN THE EVENING. IN ADDITION… CONDITIONS WILL BE HOT AND HUMID TODAY WITH HIGHS IN THE 95-97 DEGREE RANGE AND HEAT INDICES NEAR 100. TAKE APPROPRIATE PRECAUTIONS AS YOU PLAN YOU OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES. HIGHS SUNDAY WILL REMAIN IN THE 80S BEHIND THE COLD FRONT.
