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.

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- And they called it puppy love -- and with good reason, too. A New England man has fallen paws over paws in love with a shelter dog he saw on the Internet. And he didn't let a lack of money hold him back. Joel Carpenter of Portland, Maine flew to Minneapolis to adopt the puppy. Only problem: he only had money for a one-way trip. But he and his newly adopted pooch are making their way back home, thanks to the Internet and the kindness of strangers. Carpenter says he has been hitching rides, sleeping on couches and posting on Craigslist for help getting back home.


DENVER (AP) -- They were supposed to be a wedding favor designed to produce a smile. Instead they produced an evacuation at Denver International Airport. The TSA says an agent watching checked bags spotted wax and fuses in one of the bags last month. TSA says the bride and groom's names both start with a T -- so the wedding souvenirs were labeled TNT. The area was cleared while bomb specialists checked things out. Turns out that while the bottles were suggested they had TNT, they actually contained bath salts.


PARIS (AP) -- Customs agents at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris had a hairy situation to deal with. They seized 115 live scorpions. The creepy crawlers were hidden in two shipments from Cameroon to the U.S. Customs officials say the scorpions were declared as samples for medical research. But the intended recipient is identified as an individual in the U.S. who sells a number of "new animal companions" on the Internet.


BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) -- In Bradenton, Florida these days, the big buzz is about a big batch of bees. A beekeeper removed about 50,000 bees from a tree on the town's Main Street. They will be relocated to help with pollination efforts in other areas of the country. The Bradenton Herald reports the bee expert began removing the bees yesterday from a hive just outside an Irish pub. It's unclear where the bees will be shipped. The beekeeper says in the past, he has sent groups of honey bees to Maine, California and other states.
