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.

MEAT THIEF

CROTON-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. (AP) -- Is that a roast beef in your pants? Or are you just happy to leave the store without paying? Police in New York State say a supermarket employee has been accused of leaving the store with $1,200 worth of meat hidden in his pants. State Police say Gregory Rodriguez, of Ossining is charged with fourth-degree grand larceny in the case. A spokeswoman for the state police says all the meat was swiped in just one day. But she says she doesn't know if it involved more than one trip to the store.

SINGING ROAD

TIJERAS, N.M. (AP) -- You've heard about cars that hum along on the road. How about a road that sings along with cars? There is one under construction in New Mexico -- where transportation officials are trying to curb speeding along historic Route 66. Tigress Productions is creating a "singing road" between Albuquerque and the mountain community of Tijeras. The road uses a series of rumble strips to create music. The driver will hear the tune -- so long as the speed limit is observed. There are only a few of these singing roads in the world. The one in New Mexico will be featured in a new National Geographic Channel series dubbed "Crowd Control" that will make its debut in November.

COMPANY CARD-STRIPPERS

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- Here's one for those who worry that the bean counters at your company's accounting department might get on your case about your expense account. A former TD Bank executive has been sentenced to 18 months in prison. The Press Herald of Portland, Maine, reports Jeffrey Burnham used his company credit card to run up a tab of nearly a quarter million dollars at strip clubs. The card was swiped for thousand-dollar bottles of champagne and $750 lap dances -- which Burham said he needed to ease his stress from work.
