Severe thunderstorms with high winds and isolated tornadoes are expected to impact the mid-state this (Monday) evening and into the overnight.
Storms are expected to ignite in Arkansas this afternoon and begin a march eastward. The Storm Prediction Center has placed Rutherford County and much of Middle Tennessee in an enhanced risk of severe weather. That's a level three out of five on their severe weather scale.
Concern for isolated tornadoes is highest across Middle Tennessee and since the storms are expected after the sun goes down, it increases the potential danger these storms could cause.
The bad weather is expected to push east and out of the area by Tuesday, which is election day.
