Looks like the NWS radar is down. As in all of it. Poof.

Wow, how does that happen?  And is it just via internet viewing?  Surely, local NWS offices can still view their own radar.   ::pondering::

Today certainly wasn't a bust for the STL area, with a violent tornado in the far western edge of the metro and numerous funnel clouds, including 3 I saw from my apartment tower in Central West End.

Good times and all the sirens you could ever want to hear.

I think this is a great idea that needs to be repeated everywhere.

https://www.newschannel5.com/news/billboards-to-display-active-tornado-warnings-in-nashville?fbclid=IwAR2p0i9G4-FT7NCxYFHn7v0zw06AEKalPPnYFlp3pTSRGYKl8yqLs_anhVY

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) New digital billboards in Nashville won't be advertising the next new product, but rather keeping you safe by alerting you to issued Tornado Warnings.

Wingate Media will be displaying Tornado Warnings on its digital billboards, when the alerts are issued by the National Weather Service. Wingate Media President Ike Wingate said the idea came from a local billboard company advertising in Arkansas.Storm 5 meteorologist Bree Smith understands the importance in alerting the public in the event of severe weather.

"Sirens and severe weather warnings are how you know you're in danger and you can't make the right decision to get to safety if you don't know you need to do that," said Smith/

From now and into the future the Wingate Media billboards will be displaying active NWS tornado warnings in Nashville.

"I think billboards are great; anyway that we can get the information out there is going to empower people to make the decision that they need to seek shelter," said Smith.

The National Weather Service will send out an alert for a tornado warning in the Nashville Davidson County areas; the same alerts people get on cellphone, TV and radio, and now those same tornado warnings will be displayed on thedigital billboards.

"In the event of severe weather obviously moments matter, seconds can save lives .When it comes to having something that can serve the community well if we can be a use in that, we want to do that," said Wingate.

Wingate says the digital billboards in Nashville will be at Murfreesboro Pike and Polk Avenue, and Lebanon Road and Fesslers Lane.

"We want to be there in that moment, so they see it and they take shelter because in that situation a few minutes can make all the difference," said Wingate.

The billboards will be electronically synced with alerts from the NWS, meaning they disappear when the warnings expire.

There are similar digital tornado billboards in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas.

The dying line of showers has entered West TN. That's all that's left of the system that caused all the hubbub out west earlier this week.

Doesn't look like it will make it this far east... with mostly sunny skies in the forecast here.

Parts of NE OK, SE KS, & W MO upgraded to a MDT risk in both severe weather and flooding potential.

PDS tornado watch for parts of TX and OK. Quite surprised and this day is likely to be the sneaker of the period.

First time I have seen a PDS Watch issued in less than a MDT risk since 01/07/2008 in the Ozarks.     

After an underperforming High-Risk day that is a very gutsy call by the Storm Prediction Center.

wow how the weather is so unpredictable.....now today looks like more of a supercell threat than Monday when Monday looked like a devastating situation prior to the event...Today there is less cloud cover no rain shield to break through....will be interesting to watch

If that cell near Lawton begins to rotate it will be on direct path for OKC metro

The watch that is actually in the Moderate Risk area is also a PDS.

The Geronimo, OK appears to be rotating.  It might have a life after all.

It appears the best wind shear is east of I-35.  In order for said storm to have a better tornado threat, it will need to make it to I-35.
