Severe weather is likely

A possible severe weather event will begin to unfold in the Great Plains Sunday morning before shifting eastward towards Middle Tennessee. As a warm front moves up from the south and a cold front moves towards Tennessee from the west.

Some scattered thunderstorms could push into the area Sunday afternoon and again overnight into Monday morning. Nashville will mainly see some rain and wind Sunday afternoon.

These first two rounds could possibly bring a strong storm or two with gusty winds and hail. The weather could get worse Monday from midday through the afternoon and evening hours. This is when supercell thunderstorms could develop and possibly produce significant tornadoes.

A front moving through will not lower the dew points and temperatures until late Tuesday night, which could lead to more severe weather that day. There is a possibly of severe weather including hail, winds and isolated tornadoes Tuesday morning.

The Storm Prediction Center has put western Middle Tennessee into the "Slight Risk" category for Sunday night into Monday morning.

They put the "Slight Risk" in place for all of Tennessee Monday with a "Moderate Risk" for western counties.

I will have an update later tonight
