NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A line of storms continues to move across Middle TN and Southern KY Monday morning. Severe weather risk shifts to The Plateau mid morning.
The Storm Prediction Center has areas a Marginal Risk (1 of 5) for mid to late Monday morning in or eastern counties along the Cumberland Plateau.
The timing of the storms should impact the Metro area roughly from 4-9 a.m., and our eastern counties in the 9-11 a.m. period. The storms should clear the Cumberland Plateau by midday.
The storms will lose some strength near the Nashville area because of less instability, but regain strength near the Plateau mid to late morning with some increased heating near the Plateau.
The biggest threat in the risk areas is for gusty, damaging winds, but the tornado threat is not zero, particularly the farther west and northwest you are located.
These storms should also impact the rush hour commute in the Metro area with heavy downpours.
