Our heat and humidty today has led to the development of some isolated storms around the region. Some of those have even made their way into southern Cumberland County and are moving north. They have weakened from when they were in Bledsoe County, but they could still contain heavy rainfall, gusty winds, and lightning.
The current radar shows this activity moving through parts of county. At this time, there isn’t much lightning detected with our activity, but that could change if storms pulse back up a bit.
FYI, storms toward Knoxville are much more intense and will be moving into areas of Interstate 40 over the next half hour or so. Anyone traveling that route, in particlularly from Harriman to Knoxville, will need to be mindful of those stronger storms. All storms should begin weakening more the later into the evening we get.
