Scattered severe activity this afternoon

Well, those popcorn showers are kind of turning severe. There is a Severe T'storm Warning in effect for Craighead Co. in effect until 5:45. This storm is capable of producing nickel-sized hail and winds in excess of 60 mph. Here is an image from 5:16 PM (thanks to GR2):

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.
