Nature's New Years Eve Fireworks 2018

The SPC has a Slight Risk of Severe Weather in what is looking to be a potentially decent high shear-low instability event.  We have a solid low track for instability and enough wind energy but as often is the case with these events instability is low.

Just saw it. I would just like a somewhat prolonged event like the other day when that thin line came through. Some decent lightning, thunder and wind. Would preferably like everything out of here by early evening.

Btw, I didn't want to make a separate post since it seems unnecessary:
For those that use Radarscope, why do I constantly see shear markers on radar around the Nashville area? Severe Wx doesn't even have to be taking place. I see it a lot with just heavy showers around and regular thunderstorms.

Way too quiet for this thread with a slight risk and tornado watch on NYE.

There is enough wind shear for some brief tornadoes today.  The atmosphere is quite stable as far as instability goes which will preclude an even greater event.  If we didn't have these storms hit in rapid succession and we had time to get moisture to return out of ahead of these systems we could have had ourselves a high-end severe weather event this month.

68 mph wind gust reported 2 miles SW of Hopkinsville when this line moved through. Also damage reports out of Houston and Lewis Counties.

This line means business.

Pretty usual frontal passage here in my area. Heavy wind and rain for a few minutes, nothing crazy.

It's 5:30 p.m. winds gusting over 25 mph, and it's 72.1F.  It feels very strange to be typing this on December 31st.

Ringing in the new year with howling winds and temperatures rising to 73 tonight.  Almost more like a Halloween night, instead of New Year's with the wind roaring through the trees around the house.
