Severe weather popping up this afternoon - WU

**This post was archived from the MemphisWx WunderBlog.**
EDIT: Here is a radar scan of the severe thunderstorm moving through eastern Shelby County at 11:50 am. (Click on it for the full-size version)

ORIGINAL POST (1:07 pm): Well, here we go again. Most schools in the Memphis area have dismissed early due to the threat of severe weather. About an hour ago, I observed the severe thunderstorm moving through Shelby County in Cordova. There, I saw pea-sized hail, and I called the NWS to report it. This storm is now moving through Hardeman and McNairy Counties.

Also, we are under a PDS Tornado Watch until 8:00 pm. PDS means "Particularly Dangerous Situation". These are rarely issued. Also, we are under a high risk for severe weather today.

Stay with this blog for more info throughout the afternoon and evening.
