The National Weather Service of Memphis warns of possible flash flooding and “severe thunderstorms ahead of a cold front this afternoon.”

“I don’t like this one,” KWAM’s chief meteorologist Joey Sulipeck told “Wake Up Memphis.”

Sulipeck offered advice on how to stay safe as the storm system rolls through.

“If you can, be somewhere sturdy by three o’clock,” he said. “If you have to be about, it’s critical that you have some type of warning system, the phone is perfect for that.”

National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center has upgraded the Mid-South to a “very rare HIGH RISK” where “conditions are quickly becoming favorable to support the potential for numerous strong to potentially violent and long-track tornadoes,” Erin Thomas, WMC Action News 5 meteorologist, tweeted.
