Supercell thunderstorms could start as early as midday in southeastern/eastern AR, with multiple Supercell thunderstorms developing northeast across northwestern MS into western TN, even KY through Saturday afternoon. Some models also show the possibility of isolated “Intense Supercells”, likely STRONG Tornado producers, as far south as southern MS by Saturday mid-to-late afternoon. These could be long-track Supercells moving rapidly through western/northwestern AL into central TN/KY late Saturday night.
This could be a dangerous weather setup, especially across Mississippi, Northwestern Alabama, and central Tennessee and Kentucky late Saturday night.
