I wonder if it was the supercell that passed over me in wilson county. No warning until it passed but it  was a strong storm for sure.
It was not and that severe storm yesterday was NOT a supercell.

I've seen two separate videos taking from BNA's cell waiting lot of a potentially very weak, brief tornado just east of the airport earlier this afternoon.

OHX did a radar analysis and found verryyyy little evidence of a tornado.  There was one pixel that was "interesting".  It was more like a gustnado.  Pretty neat, though.

This person from the SPC said it was thats the only reason I called it that. I didnt think it was until I read that post. http://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/md/md0828.html

I was watching that cell and it sure looked like a supercell to me.

Meh, I call it marginal at best because it just didn't exhibit strong characteristics I'd consider for supercell designation. The storm actually cycled out by the time it hit the KY border.

Look at the bottom 3 pictures from the "tornado". None of the trees have leaves on them? That picture doesn't seem legit.. I mean the top one all the trees are green but the 3 bottom no leaves at all on no tree just seems like a winter time picture not one taken a few days ago.

The three photos from the EF0 Smith County Tornado? They look green and trees fully leafed to me. I'm not sure what you're looking at.

I've never seen this map with so little color.  Drought is at a record minimum across the U.S since the drought monitor was started.  Will it also keep extreme heat at a minimum this summer??   ::fingerscrossed::
