June 8, 2016 Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 9pm

July 8, 2016

The Storm Prediction Center has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for our area until 9pm. It includes everyone but Tazewell and Smyth Counties in Southwest Virginia and the North Carolina mountains for now.

Storms are not near our area right now, but if you look at the map of the watch below, storms are coming. We have mostly cloudy conditions at least in Bristol right now, with sunshine popping out from time to time. We are toward the eastern end of the watch box, so with things moving northwest to southeast, we’ll be the last in the box to get the storms.

If you’re east and south of the Tri-Cities, it will take longer for storms to arrive, and more sunshine may contribute to more intense storms. When they do arrive, damaging winds are possible, along with hail. The tornado risk is low, but not zero.


Follow me on Twitter (look to the right side of the page) for updates through the rest of the afternoon.
