4/2 - 2pm - West Tennessee Weather Update

A very nice weekend is in progress across West Tennessee as sunshine and temperatures around 70 make an appearance. Tomorrow's high of 80 in Jackson will be summer-like for sure, but severe weather looms as we start the workweek.

A cold front and associated trough will approach from the west and trigger an outbreak of severe weather on Monday afternoon and evening. Timing of the frontal passage will be key here... if it comes through quicker we could have an afternoon event and a later passage would lead to a night of storms. It's unclear exactly how this will play out since we don't know what kind of surface winds we'll be dealing with for sure. Right now I'm thinking there's a possibility for a few supercells with a tornado risk in the afternoon on Monday with a squall line of severe storms and possibly embedded tornadoes later on in the day.
