Tracking a cold front across the state
A disorganized line of showers continues to march across Middle TN this morning. Lightning strikes have been hard to find but that may change at any moment. The risk for severe storms continues to be very low. This activity is expected to be east of the plateau by noon. Radar imagery shows the rain coming. The image below was captured at 8:55. The borders of Cumberland and Fentress county have been highlighted. There continue to be no watches or warnings for Tennessee. Because of the steep slant of the line from southwest to northeast, areas around Jamestown will see the heavier rain much sooner (within the hour) than areas around Crossville (within the next two hours).
