Sunday will bring some strong to severe storms to the Tennessee Valley. While an isolated shower or storm is possible late in the afternoon, the greater threat will arrive during the evening hours.
The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has placed the Tennessee Valley under an ENHANCED RISK (level 3 out of 5) for severe storms.
A few scattered showers will form this afternoon, and will likely quickly become severe. Another round of storms will move in during the evening hours, this time a line of strong to severe storms will move through with the potential for damaging winds.
Any storm Sunday will be capable of damaging winds, heavy rain, frequent lightning, and hail. Storms could result in downed trees and powerlines, as well as localized flooding or flash flooding. While the tornado risk is lower today, it is not zero. There could be just enough spin in the atmosphere for an isolated tornado.
