A Tornado Watch is in effect for counties in red, south of the Tennessee River until 4 a.m. Wednesday. This means conditions are favorable for severe storms capable of producing a tornado. Stay alert to changing weather conditions and have multiple ways to get warnings, should one be issued overnight.
As we progress into the overnight hours, a second round of showers and storms will develop ahead and along a cold front. Strong storms are possible during this time, with the threats of high wind gusts and heavy rainfall. Localized flooding and flash flooding will be threats. The tornado threat is low but not zero. In total, an additional one inch of rain will be possible.
Make sure you have multiple ways to get warnings with the next round of storms moving in overnight. You’ll want to make sure you can get woken up if an alert is issued.
One way you can do this is by downloading the Live Alert 19 App. The Weather Authority will continue to keep updated on the latest!
