NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A windy warm-up is in store on Sunday that will help set the stage for possible strong storms.
The Storm Prediction Center has placed a Slight Risk (category 2 of 5) over much of the Nashville Metro and Southern Kentucky, and has extended their Marginal Risk (category 1 of 5) farther east to include the rest of Middle Tennessee.
We could see a few storms late Sunday afternoon and evening that could be strong or severe, but we are also watching another round of storms ahead of a strong cold front late Sunday night through Monday morning.
Areas especially west of I-65 especially should be alert for damaging winds and heavy downpours. Minor flooding is also a concern, especially north and west. An isolated tornado will also be possible since there will be wind shear and instability. The threat for both wind and tornadoes is elevated west of I-65.
Since a lot of this is happening while you may be asleep, make sure you have weather alerts turned on that are loud enough to wake you up!
