How’s this for a low chance of a thunderstorm with high impacts in the event that it occurs?

An isolated thunderstorm cluster moved through Manchester, Tennessee Saturday night, right in the middle of the Bonnaroo music festival.

Out of the entire state of Tennessee, the storms organized just west of Manchester before moving east over the festival.

Lightning and thunder were reported in the area, and festival goers were ushered to safety. Music and festivities were halted throughout the duration of the storm.

Thankfully, the thunderstorm cluster moved east of the festival and continued to weaken, allowing the festival to resume Saturday night.

But let this storm serve as a reminder that even when an isolated chance of thunderstorms is in the forecast, the one storm that develops can still create major impacts.
