This presentation will discuss the likelihood of supercell thunderstorms becoming tornadic as they progress into eastern Middle Tennessee. The assumption is the higher elevations of that region effectively lower the height of the lifted condensation levels (LCLs) above ground level. Prior research has shown that lower LCL heights can be a major component in tornadogenesis, and previous studies of the effects of higher terrain on LCL heights and impacts on supercells and tornadoes will be reviewed. Data from severe weather events in 2011 and 2012 across Middle Tennessee will be examined to determine if there is a correlation between the higher topography of the Cumberland Plateau, LCL heights, and an increased likelihood for tornadic supercells. Results from this study and the impacts on improving forecasts, warning operations, and decision support services will be discussed.
