April 24th Severe Weather Reports

April 24th Severe Weather Reports from the Storm Prediction Center.
 
A rapidly developing area of low pressure tracked northeastward from northeast Texas across Arkansas and Missouri 
on Saturday, resulting in an outbreak of severe thunderstorms across portions of the Tennessee Valley and the
Mid-South. While a tremendous amount of wind shear was in place, a lack of sunshine and instability combined with
drier air quickly arriving late Saturday afternoon only allowed for a few severe storms across the Quad State.

The following are a number of heavy rain and severe weather reports from Saturday...
