We are closely watching a storm system moving into East Tennessee this morning. This will bring rain and a few thunderstorms for the first half of the day. The more rain we see this morning, the lower our chance for severe weather is this afternoon and evening.
Our entire area is under a level 1 out of 5 risk for severe storms today. A few storms could begin later this afternoon (mainly after lunchtime) and linger into tonight. Damaging winds and hail up to a quarter in size are the main threats. Locally heavy rain will be possible in a few storms as well. While the tornado risk is low today, it is not zero – make sure you have multiple ways to receive alerts!
