April 27, 2016 Late Night Severe Weather Update

April 27, 2016

A few storms have popped up as we transitioned from April 26 to the morning of April 27:

storms 042716 0026This first storm to the left is way up in northern parts of our area, north of Haysi in Dickenson County, Virginia, with most of the storm right on the state line between Virginia and Kentucky. There’s a little bit of lightning with this and some heavy downpours, but nothing severe with this or anything in our area so far.

There are a couple storms near the Tennessee/Virginia line as well, as seen in this image. That one just north of Kyles Ford is headed toward Gate City. It now has lightning in it, so it’s worth watching over the next few hours.

Look for storms to arrive at the Kentucky/Virginia border toward Dickenson, Buchanan, Wise, and Lee Counties toward 2am or so.

After that, storms should arrive between 2 and 3 AM for Kingsport, and shortly thereafter for Bristol and Abingdon. Looks like close to 3am for those areas, perhaps just after 3 AM. If the storms continue to weaken, Johnson City and Jonesborough may only see rain showers!

The good news is, there are no polygons coming forth from the maps! That tells me that storms are not severe. That’s a good sign, since the sun has been down for quite a while, storms don’t have the fuel to strengthen by the time they get here.

That said, these are thunderstorms, and you might want to be prepared for their arrival. By now, kids are probably in bed. Be aware that lightning and loud thunder are possible with these storms, which is normal. That might scare kids if they get jolted awake by a loud rumble of thunder. So don’t be surprised if you have to get up yourself to comfort a child later this morning.

We’ll get a break from storms for a bit tomorrow, but more storms are coming late in the day, then tomorrow night and Thursday. It won’t rain all day, so temperatures should be warm each afternoon for the rest of the week.

And, if you’re a listener to Bible Buddies, the kids’ show on WHCB, check out The Weather Channel if you’re up watching the storms. Nick Walker is on watching the storms! He’s The Weather Dude, you know, and we play his songs on Bible Buddies quite regularly. I’ll try to get more updates started in an hour or so as storms start to enter our area.
