Exclamation W. Tennessee S. Missouri - Heads Up!!

We have 2 tornadic Super-Cells moving through eastern Arkansas right now. One has a CONFIRMED Tornado up north headed for the bootheel of Missouri, the other is headed just north of Memphis.

BOTH CELLS HAVE BEEN PRODUCING BOTH TORNADOES AND BASEBALL SIZED (AND LARGER) HAIL!! Some hail has been measured in excess of 3 inches in diameter.

They went north and south of us so we're all okay here but

Stay Safe!!

Hope their isn't much damage or any injuries!! Been watching them here too. Only storms here are just a few miles south and north moving northeast. Not too bad right now, just small thunderstorms. Not sure if they are going to intensify, but, if they do, watch for those going towards Arkansas, Raven.

Ouch! Thanks for warning TG, I'll switch to long range and take a look.

We've had blue sky and sunshine all day here so there's enough instability to get the fireworks going good if they start popping. We're at 84º with a dew-point of 64º (it never seems to fail, when we hit a dew point of 67º we get storms).

Thanks again.

Hail was down to quarter-sized when it came through East Tennessee.

I had a friend who literally got blown off her motorcycle on the interstate just outside Memphis yesterday. She was on her way back from this end of the state after a great weekend of hanging out with other motorcycle friends.

She said it took three people just to stand the bike back up because the wind was so strong.

Hope she wasn't hurt, phinz!!
Bikes are so scary anyway. My sister and bil ride their Harley's everywhere. They got caught last year in Conroe, Texas in a storm and sis will NEVER ride when it's even raining anymore. Scared her to death!!
