Storms are now moving into western Putnam County. They are steadily moving eastward. The warnings are along and north of I-40. The southern flank of that line could fill in more as the system approaches the plateau.
Lightning continues to be decreasing. Notice how the energy is shifting to Alabama and Mississippi. That often saves us in situations like this. Let’s hope that’s the case today!
Thankfully, the tornado threat remains low. The hail threat is practically non-existent. The main threat remains the straight-line wind threat. The line of storms should be passed us by 1:00. I’ll let you know when we get the all-clear.
Parts of Overton, Jackson, and Clay counties just went under a severe t-storm warning until 11:45. Take cover if you live in those counties.
The line should be approaching Cumberland and Fentress Counties at noon.
