Tracking the severe storms potential

Darin HammondMar 28, 2017

The amount of lightning a storm is producing, or the rate at which rain is falling, does not make a thunderstorm "severe" by the meteorological definition.

The greatest risk for storms today will be to the north and west of Alabama in parts of MS and Tennessee, where there is an enhanced risk. A brief isolated tornado is possible as well.

The storm system that moved through last Friday and the storm system that is expected on Wednesday are very similar in nature.

The weather service said a smaller risk of hail and isolated wind damage extends as far south and east as Montgomery and Auburn.

National Weather Service in Memphis has issued a hazardous weather outlook for portions of East Arkansas, the Missouri Bootheel, North Mississippi and West Tennessee.

Tuesday will be another severe weather day in Oklahoma.

But many people do not pay as much attention to a severe thunderstorm warning as a tornado warning, saying, "it's just a severe thunderstorm warning".

The stronger times of the storm are expected in the afternoon and early evening.

The National Weather Service out of Norman forecast hail "larger than quarters" and wind gusts of up to 60 miles per hour.
