The National Weather Service has issued a TORNADO WATCH for Rutherford County until 11pm. Damaging straight line winds and isolated tornadoes are possible with storms.
Severe thunderstorms have led to a state of emergency in Tennessee. Tornadoes left behind damage in southern Middle Tennessee, but Rutherford County was one of the lucky areas.
The wording from the National Weather Service and Storm Prediction Center about the potential for severe weather for Middle Tennessee was designed to get our attention. And it should. Severe thunderstorms, some with damaging winds, large hail and tornadoes, are possible in Middle Tennessee.
The National Weather Service reports the chance for severe weather continues to linger between now and 9PM this evening. We may see hail and increasing rain. That chance for severe weather again continues on Tuesday. As rainfall is expected this Monday evening, flash flooding will likely be a problem.
Note: There is still a possibility of isolated tornadoes.
