Storms Tonight?

It is a gorgeous morning! I hear the birds chirping, the sun is shining and there are no clouds in the sky. (Or at least that is what I see out my window.) However, later today clouds will start rolling in and so will the chances of rain.

The Storm Prediction Center is suggesting that there could be some strong storms later today/tonight. Notice the "Slight Risk" area in the below graphic. The graphic covers 7am Friday - 7am Saturday.

The biggest threat appears to be damaging wind and hail.
However, dew points are very low (in the middle 30°'s.) We need them to be in the 50°'s before we start talking about severe weather. Looking to the south you need to go to Memphis to find the 50°'s. At 10am, the dew point in Memphis is 54°.

On a side note... Sorry about the lack of posts the last couple of days. I have been filling in on the Breakfast Show (5am-7am) a few days this week. That means my alarm clock has been going off at 2am. Not fun! I am not a morning person!!!
