That was one of the scariest days as far as absolute potential was concerned for the KY/TN border area.  You essentially had March/Early April dynamics and shear with late May instability.  Thankfully the LCL's and Mixing that also saved us on our next High Risk came through on what could have been a horrible day.  I have only felt that dreadful fear on a few other setups since tracking these starting in 2006-07 (e.g. 2/5/08, 4/10/08, 4/27/11, 3/2/12).  Thankfully 3 out of 5 didn't verify to that level (3/2 did but not quite to that level locally) but of course we know what the other 2 did.

The most nervous i ever was was the 2006 outbreak in april, 60% tornado probs over my area tends to get you nervous lol

Yeah, looks like some 30s for lows again. We're just not able to get past the risk of frost and freeze just yet.

This is dogwood winter now since the dogwoods are in full bloom. Next week might really be the continuation of this cold pattern since there isn't much of a warm-up in between. It's certainly a reinforcing shot of cold air on the maps. I suppose it might be locust winter next. Blackberry winter should be after that in early May. Surely, we'll be done with frost and freeze by then, but there was a May freeze last year, so we can't rule that out either.

I sure remember that day well. I guess it's the only time I've viewed a tornado, or at least a rotating wall cloud, with my own eyes.

I was on the campus of Lipscomb University and watched that rotating mass move across downtown.

I have seen two, the scariest was i just happened as a teenager to be riding to my uncles house in southern birmingham metro in april 1998, It was lightning like crazy and as we passed south through malfuntcion junction into birmingham there was a LOT of lightning to the west, I saw in the distance (4-5 miles) the upper half of what was the F5 in oak grove region lit up in the lightning, i was TERRIFIED, and we booked it south in a hurry.
