1:00pm Weather Update

Tornado Watches are draped over Arkansas, Tennessee, Louisiana, and Mississippi this afternoon. That area will be under a Tornado Watch until 8pm CT this evening.

The Storm Prediction Center has put out their latest Day 2 Outlook and they have included more parts of the KFVS viewing area under the "Moderate Risk" area for severe thunderstorms from 7am CT Saturday through 7am CT Sunday.

The "Moderate Risk" area now includes parts of southeast Missouri, southern Illinois, all of western Kentucky, and northwest Tennessee.

To go along with the outlook, here is the probability chart by the Storm Prediction Center for tomorrow.

The probability chart shows the percent chance of severe weather occurring anywhere within a given point inside the area. The blue hatched area means that there is at least a 10% chance of significant severe weather occurring.

I am getting a little concerned about tomorrow afternoon. Specifically from 1pm-8pm. If this morning's run of the GFS is correct, it could get "interesting" especially in western Kentucky and northwest Tennessee.
