449 am EDT Wed may 24 2017 /349 am CDT Wed may 24 2017/

... Severe thunderstorms possible today, especially areas east of
Interstate 75...

A strong upper level storm system will move across the Tennessee
Valley today. The airmass across the area will be moist and
marginally unstable with favorable turning of the wind. The main
question is how much breaks in the cloud cover occur allowing the
airmass to become destabilize.

If the airmass is allowed to become unstable, some of the storms
may become severe. The main concern will be isolated tornadoes,
hail up to quarter size, damaging winds and localized heavy
rainfall.

The greatest threat of severe storms will be east of Interstate
75, and between noon and 5 PM et. Please stay tuned to NOAA
Weather Radio and other local media for further details or
updates.
