    Large portion of TN and KY under the gun today. The tornadoes in Iowa yesterday weren't even expected.

    Any chance this threat holds together further east this weekend?

    Wow, moderate risk for Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee now.

    Not something you would normally see in late July.

    Very rare for late July. I’m hoping it ends up being weaker then forecasted as many systems have up here over the last few years. It has been quite awhile since northern middle Tennessee has been hit hard so unfortunately we are due one of these days. Oh winter how I miss you.

    HRRR looks ugly for GA. Not something I want to see.

    Winds are the highest risk here I think. Just hoping we don't get winds over 60 mph from this. That would do a ton of damage. Looks like it's going to be between 6 and 8 am here when it comes in so at least we can sleep some here.

    90 out of 95 counties in Tennessee under a tornado watch (294 & 295). Very impressive for any time of year, much less July.

    I feel like this threat is a bust for most of the Alabama folks. The HRRR has looked way less than impressive for us. I just don’t see anything intializing in a place that would affect many in Alabama, especially the central portions. I have been pretty skeptical all day, but maybe the HRRR is out to lunch. It’s so tough to forecast these things this time of year.

    It's still too early to tell. The main event is still in KY, so that means there is still awhile to go.

    not sure if any of the mesoscale models predicted a three pronged attack... interesting.

    Wouldn’t this indicate rotation at some level of the storm?

    Possible ping pong ball sized hail headed here. Absolute light show outside with nonstop lightning. Probably several flashes a second.

    Missed the hail but the downpour and lighting is intense. And to think there is more coming later today.

    Had an inch of rain in half an hour. Rates were good and local news says we get hit by 9 again. Probably could see a couple inches today alone.

    Very impressive MCS/QLCS this morning. Almost looks like a derecho on the radar with the bowing look.

    Storm has arrived. This is some of the heaviest rain I have ever seen! Very gusty winds as well!
