Rotation went north of me in Cordova, thankfully. Storm itself wasn't so bad at all - had some high winds and a deluge of rain, briefly, but nothing too serious. Despite all the lightning, it's pretty quiet in my area too.

Lots of damage around Memphis/Germantown... Looks like the worst in Memphis itself was from the airport east along the south end of the 240 loop and into Germantown.  Lots of trees and power lines down.  Reports of roof off of an apartment building in Parkway Village, but I haven't seen any pics yet.

This has weakened to a remnant squall line as it approaches Nashville.

I’d say rain totals have dropped quite a bit overall along with that

Wow.  It looks like there won't even be any thunder east of I-65.  Hopefully we will get some rain over this way.

My sister lives a mile north of where the Dallas tornado struck.  She lost a few shingles to hail and wind but said she saw devastation as she made her way to work, dodging tree limbs, shards of lumber, and wads of insulation on the tollway into the city.   :'(

Almost certainly QLCS Tornado in south eastern Shelby this morning.

Looking at the 10 day forecasts we better get our fill of the sun in the next two days as it looks to be at least a week before we'll see it again after Thursday.  The cool temps and rain will be welcome, but it will definitely feel like the fall season with things being so dark and damp for several straight days.

https://sports.yahoo.com/dallas-tv-station-apologizes-for-prioritizing-cowboys-game-over-tornado-warning-022614636.html

Darned if you do darned if you don't when it comes to broadcasting.

Not to say the station shouldn’t have broke away from the game to live coverage, but is it always necessary to switch over completely, when an alert beep and bottom screen crawl gets the job done?

In my youth, I don’t remember the wall to wall coverage like we get today - the beep and the scrolling warning text was what you got, while whatever was on the channel kept rolling.

The weather aware will take that just as seriously as an on air person cutting in. The non-weather aware that ignores that will be the ones who complain when the station interrupts programming, and they probably won’t take it seriously in either case.

No one will ever please everyone.

There will always be the folks who proclaim, “We had no warning!” no matter what happens, I suspect.

There may be some FCC regulations stipulating "wall-to-wall" coverage that may explain the difference between today and yesteryear (as it were).  I don't know.  Does the advent of social media play a role with wall-to-wall coverage?

The Euro says rainfall may be excessive this weekend over middle TN. It has a large area of 6-8" qpf. Way less out here in east TN. The GFS actually has shifted the heavier precip right over the worst of the drought areas, but has lower max qpf of 4-6" just south of KCHA.

We may have had our first freeze near Fairview this morning. When I went out to the car at 7, I had to scrape ice off of my windshield.
