Just a warning, those south of the predicted area need to keep a very close eye on this MCS as well. The HRRR has this weakening on BHM's door step. Do not be surprised if this thing make it farther south than forcasted. The HRRR show's surface based capes still around 2000 over night with enough shear to sustain it and dry air aloft for a decent wind threat. These things tend to last longer than predicted.

If it does fall apart as predicted, watch for severe gusts as the storms collaspe.

I think you are probably right, ARCC. Derecho doing heavy (or worse) damage right now in Tennessee - Knoxville to Chattanooga area. Residents reporting widespread power outages & sounds of falling trees.

Edit: Don't think the wind has reached Chattanooga yet. Knoxville/Maryville area in the crosshairs right now.

The Dougherty tornado is spotter confirmed. I am a little surprised at the location as I thought the area of concern was northeast Ok into southwest Missouri. But, I have not been keeping up w/ the larger picture.

TWC reporting that almost all of Knoxville is without power. Not a good weekend to be camping in the Smokies.

Ardmore, OK. needs to be paying attention to that tornadic supercell moving in its general direction. The problem is it is midnight & many people are asleep. I could not imagine living in Ok. & not having multiple ways of being warned as you sleep (personal weather radios, cell phone alerts, town sirens, etc).
But many people have a shoulder shrug mentality about the weather - even in Ok., of all places.

It's weakening a bit but the outflow looks incredibly intense. Expecting severe winds here in a matter of minutes. There's significant wind damage to the west...

Mostly passed here, south of the strongest echoes; seems as though the apex is moving east instead of southeast now. The line here has fragmented a bit and wind was pretty tame in my area (tonight I'm just S of the Winston county line)

Got power on just before 9pm today in here in Franklin county, AL. Power poles in some large open fields were snapped by only the wind force alone (around 70 mph gusts), so power was off for over 19 hours. I was amazed by this bow, I've never witnessed a bow produce such long lasting severe winds as this did (high winds lasted around 20 to 30 minutes), so I dubbed this the 30 minute Ivan. lol
