Nashville, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Storm Prediction Center has placed parts of Allen, Barren, Cumberland and Clinton Counties (KY) in a Marginal Risk (1/5) for strong to severe storms on Sunday afternoon and evening, as well as the extreme southern sections of Giles Lawrence, and Wayne Counties.
Sunday brought scorching temperatures in the low 90s, and plenty of moisture in the air. That combination, plus a cold front pushing into the region, will cause isolated strong storms possible late day and evening.
While the majority of the region could see storms, Southern Kentucky has the greatest risks for those storms to be strong, or severe. Threats include heavy rain, gusty winds, and small hail.
These storms could produce heavy rain, gusty winds, and small hail is not out of the question.
