(WATE) – Despite the beautiful day, strong to severe storms are likely this evening, beginning as early as 7 PM EDT over the Plateau. A small portion of our area is under a level 3 risk for severe weather with much of the Plateau and Southeast Kentucky under a level 2 risk.
A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is currently in effect until 9 PM EDT for part of the Plateau. Remember, a watch means conditions are favorable to see severe weather and a warning means severe weather is imminent or already occurring.
The main threats tonight will continue to be damaging winds, heavy rain and hail. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out as well.
Southeast Kentucky and along the TN/KY border have the best chance for severe weather tonight. At this point, the timing of storms is likely between 7 PM Sunday and 3 AM Monday morning. Have a way to receive weather alerts!
