One concern I have right now is a cell that is moving into Hardeman/McNairy Counties from MS. At 5:15, there seemed to be an area of possible rotation right over the town of Middleton. I will be watching this one closely. Also getting some high cloud tops with this one - 48900 kft. VIL is at 51 & max hail size is 1.12 in. I would not be surprised to see a warning out for this one soon.
For the rest of today, there is a 50% chance of showers. According to WU, most of these should move in after 11:00 AM, but the chances get higher as the day goes on. Tomorrow is the same situation.
Another update will come this afternoon.

This storm does not seem to be very impressive. No storm reports prompted the warning. The echo tops are only about 35 kft right now. This storm has weakened considerably and I bet that the NWS cancels this one early.
UPDATE: How did I know? The NWS has cancelled this warning as of 5:35 PM.
IF A THUNDERSTORM OCCURS IN YOUR AREA...SEEK SHELTER INSIDE UNTIL THE STORM PASSES DUE TO THE OCCURRENCE OF DANGEROUS LIGHTNING.Well, I guess this is true. Yesterday, a person at Pickwick Lake, near the TVA dam, was struck by lightning around 1:30 PM. The person complained of no feeling in his arm and the inability to swallow. He lived, though.
Today will the last day in the 90s for a while. Most of the week's highs seem to be in the mid 80s. Friday, however, it should creep back up to 90.
Let me review you on what has happened to me in the past two months. I have met with Jim Belles at the National Weather Service twice, one time just to meet him and another time to discuss SKYWARN matters. By the way, I now have my amateur radio license: it is KI4PCT. I don't have a radio yet, but plan on getting one soon. I do, however, have EchoLink.
Also, my weather station is currently down. A few weeks ago, as some roofers were hard at work nailing shingles to our house, somehow they damaged my anemometer located on the roof. So, the data will be gone until I can purchase a new anemometer.
Much more has happened since then, but I've forgotten it. Oh well.
