The next and last batch of storms to threaten our area today are developing west of Nashville right now. They are not overly impressive, and I don’t expect them to become overly impressive as they move eastward. That’s not to say one or two of those storms won’t be severe when they get here, and that’s why the Storm Prediction Center maintains the marginal risk for severe storms for our area through the afternoon.
So, widespread severe weather is not expected but one or two storms this afternoon could contain a damaging wind gust, hail to one inch in diameter, heavy rainfall, and cloud to ground lightning. The chance for a brief tornado spin-up is very low.
I highlighted Cumberland County on the radar imagery below. I circled the next batch of storms that we’ll keep an eye on.
