Possibility of severe weather today - 8/20/09

The Mid-South region is under a SLIGHT RISK for the potential of severe weather today and tonight. The primary threats are damaging wind and large hail. This morning's showers and thunderstorms may be a fly in the ointment for the potential for severe weather later today, as the atmosphere is stabilized a great deal in the wake of the system this morning. If clouds can break and sufficient heating can occur, the threat increases for later this afternoon.

I also expect a line of storms to accompany the cold front as it sweeps through the region late tonight. These storms also pose the threat for gusty wind and heavy rain.

Stay with for the latest on the possibility of severe weather, including interactive radar, severe weather watches and warnings, and the most accurate forecast in Memphis.
