Severe Storms and Flash Flooding

A complex series of fronts across the Tennessee Valley will be the focal point severe thunderstorms and flash flooding today into tonight. High dew point air (60s) is flowing north from the Gulf of Mexico and is becoming the fuel for thunderstorms to develop. The band of thunderstorms that do develop today can produce damaging winds, hail and flash flooding. Some areas will see over 4 inches of rainfall from the storms. While there is a tornado threat from Northeast Texas to northern Mississippi, I think the threat is minimal today and that flooding and damaging winds/hail will be the main impacts.

Models and What They are Showing for the Front End Snow Friday Night into Saturday

Teh rain that is coming north may start off at a little snow from the Virginia mountains to Maine Friday night into Saturday. While this is not a big event and the outcome will be rain, it shows that winter is still holding on tight across the Northeast. The models seem to an all in agreement that the higher elevations have snow while valley locations have a mixture of snow and rain. Some higher elevations may have up to 4 inches of snow.

Watch the change to snow on radar.
