Severe Winds Today; Isolated Tornadoes Possible?

With today's threat you can clearly see that the wind is what we will have to worry most about. And even this morning ahead of the system we are seeing wind gust in the 30-35 mph range and those numbers could go up as the squall line gets closer.
Here's the tornado risk and as you can tell it is rather low like I thought it has been since we started tracking this system a couple days ago. But with a 5% risk area we need to keep a close watch on this system cause an isolated tornado or two can't be ruled out with this squall line passing through at around the lunchtime hour for Nashville. The current squall line is back into Memphis and has died down quite a bit, but we do expect this line to strengthen as it moves are way later on today.
