Current weather scenario as of late Wednesday morning

Below you will find the weather scenario the Mid-South is dealing with as of late Wednesday morning, as seen by radar and annotated satellite imagery.

The overnight rain and thunderstorms have moved to the east and are covering the central Appalachians into northern GA, much of AL, and the FL panhandle.  There is actually quite a line of impressive storms that have spawned tornado warnings over extreme southern AL and the panhandle of FL this morning.  The cold front has moved east of Memphis.  It's passage brought low clouds and some light rain showers during the morning rush hour.  It is picked up well by satellite as a narrow thin line and can be seen in the same location on radar as a narrow faint line of rain from west KY into west TN.

Behind the front, a few breaks in the clouds have brought peeks of sunshine this morning, but low clouds will be moving back into the region this afternoon, lasting through tonight.  These clouds are in association with an upper-level trough of low pressure that commonly trails a cold front.  This one has enough moisture to produce clouds and could bring some sprinkles or drizzle overnight tonight into early Thursday.  I am expecting at least the morning hours on Thursday to be cloudy, with these clouds departing by afternoon, leading to a nice weekend!  The complete forecast can be found at

Radar and visible satellite imagery valid at about 11am CST.
