Early morning showers that moved through the Valley Tuesday helped put a “lid” on the severe threat in the region. As a result, the Storm Prediction Center no longer has the Tennessee Valley under a risk for severe thunderstorms.

With that said, a line of thunderstorms continues to push through the region, namely east of I-65 into the Cumberland Plateau, including the Lookout Mountain and Sand Mountain regions.

As of this writing, the forecast timeline for the storms to exit the region is roughly 4pm to 5pm. Rain showers are expected to taper off by 7pm.

Storms moving through the region may produce some briefly strong wind gusts as well as a few lightning strikes, but periods of heavy rain will continue to be the main impacts through Tuesday evening.

Once the storms pass, drier more stable air moves in leading to a very nice middle part of the week.
