Pinpoint predictor indicates we could see a few stronger thunderstorms over North Alabama and southern Tennessee between 5-6pm this evening. These will likely develop along thunderstorm outflow boundaries. Theses storms will be capable of torrential rain, significant lightning, small hail and damaging wind gusts.
A tornado watch has been issued for Middle Tennessee until 9pm. This watch runs all the way to the Alabama state line. Shower and storm development will continue to move to the south as the individual storms track east. The primary concern will be damaging straight line winds but there is enough spin in the atmosphere to create some rotation in the stronger storms. We will continue to watch this area of development.
