Severe thunderstorms possible Sunday

Severe thunderstorms possible Sunday

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - As the system that soaked the Mid-South this week moves east, another weather maker will move into our area. This system will not linger around like the previous one, but the weather disturbance on Sunday night may pack more of a punch.

With ample moisture and some instability, there will be a SLIGHT risk for severe weather on Sunday night. Rain and thunderstorms will be likely with a chance for scattered severe thunderstorms.

THREATS: The main threats will be flash flooding and strong wind gusts. Although the threat is VERY low, there is still a chance for one or two tornadoes and small hail.

TIMING: The thunderstorms will move from the southwest to the northeast on Sunday evening. The prime time for severe weather will be 7 PM to midnight in eastern Arkansas, west Tennessee and northeast Mississippi.

I highly recommend that you download the WMC Weather App to track the rain on the interactive radar. Also, make sure that your alerts are turned on in the settings on the app, so that you get warnings and watches sent straight to your phone.
