Severe Weather chances Thursday March 14, 2019

News

Once again we’re talking about the opportunity for severe weather across the Tennessee Valley. 

First, on top of the chance for severe weather the entire Tennessee Valley is also under a Wind Advisory through 7:00 PM March 14, 2019. Expect sustained winds to be 20-25mph and wind gusts nearing 40-45mph with higher speeds in the higher elevations. 

The Tennessee Valley is under a slight risk for severe weather this afternoon and evening with the majority of us sitting under an enhanced risk for severe weather. The biggest threat looks to be damaging winds, but a tornado cannot be ruled out. Remember we are getting into the heart of severe weather season. The enhanced risk means storms will be more widespread with some storms being more intense. 

As far as the timing is concerned, this looks like it’ll be an afternoon and early overnight event. I do think we could see a few showers push in around noon, but the main line of concern will be during the heart of the afternoon and then through the evening. For that reason, many schools across the Tennessee Valley will be releasing early. That list can be found here

As I mentioned earlier the biggest threat with this system will be the gusty winds and heavy rain which will continue to lead to flooding concerns. 

Here’s a look at futurecast through the afternoon and getting into the evening. It matches pretty nicely with the timing map above. 

As always be sure to have the WZDX weather App and follow Maggie and I online and on the air if it’s warranted.
