Severe Potential Next Week - 04/25/14

A few thoughts on next weeks severe storms:

It still looks likely for strong to severe thunderstorms to pop beginning Sunday and lasting until Wednesday morning.  This is going to be a muti-day severe weather outbreak that everyone needs to be prepared for.

A warm front will lift north on Sunday afternoon, popping thunderstorms through the afternoon.  At this point, the main source of energy will still be well west of middle Tennessee (thus the severe threat will be marginal) but we could still see a few strong storms in the afternoon.  Later in the evening, thunderstorms are expected to increase in coverage with a line of strong storms producing gusty winds and heavy rainfall.

As the upper level energy moves closer to us on Monday, our severe threat will go up.  A break in activity looks likely between the Monday morning storms and late afternoon storms.  It's the late afternoon/evening storms that we will need to watch closely for severe weather, including supercells that can produce damaging winds and tornadoes.

Our storm threat will continue into Tuesday with wind and rain as the primary threats.  Finally by Wednesday, the main energy will move out of the area as cool, dry weather moves in. 

The most important thing to remember is to be prepared, not scared.  Make sure your family has the proper supplies in place in case of severe weather.  Stay tuned on our website and social media pages over the weekend for updates on the developing system.

WINTER WEATHER-ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

HAMBURG, NY (AP) -- Enough is enough. That's how Tami and Dave Crimi feel. They're used to harsh winter weather in the Buffalo, New York, area. But this year's is never ending to them. Tami says she's "tried of being cold." A November storm dropped more than six feet of snow and their roof collapsed. Now, they've spent more than 100 days in a hotel with their 10- and 12-year-old sons and two dogs. Tami says usually they don't mind Buffalo winters.

So, Pressly strapped on his cross-country skis to take a tour of Capitol Hill. He's been skiing for years. But he says this is the first time he's ever done it in the city. He adds it took about 20 minutes to ski from his home to the Capitol area.

CATCH SHAGGY

CASCADE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- It's a Shaggy dog story -- with Shaggy getting a new home. Shaggy the dog has been on the run for months in the Grand Rapids, Michigan, area.

POTTED PLANT TOILET

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Pooping in a potted plant is a legal no-no. Police in Omaha, Nebraska, report a 32-year-old man was busted after he pooped in one plant and peed in another at a federal office. The Omaha World-Herald reports the man was in the waiting room area of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services building. He's pleaded guilty to indecent exposure and received a five-day jail sentence in lieu of paying a fine. Police say the man told them -- quote -- "Sometimes you have to let the bear outside the woods."
