Does the HRRR over do SB Cape? It has cape values of 1000+ j/kg all the way up into the TN Valley this afternoon/evening.
I wouldn’t be shocked if we get those kinds of instability values later today. We have some pretty cold upper level temps moving in and already have 1500 J/KG CAPE over LA/MS.

The only tornado event I am aware of in this area on this date (I'm really familiar with today's date ;) ) was the Super Tuesday Outbreak of 2008. Praying we don't even come close.

Reed is on the hype train. When is he not. He called for a tornado outbreak for the last event. That was not correct. This time he says it might be an outbreak or might turn into one. This is his thinking today. I think the map is fine face value but im not on the hype train.

Weed Trimmer calls for an outbreak nearly every trough passing through the eastern half of the US. I think the duration of this may lead to some problems given onset this afternoon and then through the overnight hours.

I’d also watch the coastal areas and southern portions of MS, AL, and Florida panhandle to see more of the severe that today has to offer.

A lot of coastal convection right now. Will have to see if it messes with low level trajectories for later today.
