More popcorn showers this afternoon

NWS radar is showing scattered showers in NE MS, north of Dyersburg, and in the MO Bootheel this afternoon. These are moving N at 10-15 mph (according to the NWS). Most of the storms will dump less than .5 in/hour, but some could dump over 1 in/hour. Some of the storms are strong with max hail sizes in the .75-1 in range. Max echo tops are 47200 kft.

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.
