Slight Risk For Severe Storms, NW Middle TN; Strong Storms Elsewhere

As we hit these 70º temps for yet another day, we include the chance at some area wide thunderstorms with large hail and damaging winds being the main storm risks (isolated, brief tornado spin-ups can't be completely ruled out either).

This morning, a squall line type system is being set up over in Western MO where a Tornado Watch is in effect for them. I expect that line to continue its march eastward today and impact us by the later afternoon going on into the evening hours. Even though most of Middle TN is excluded from the risk area...we still need to watch this line closely as we could very well see some strong to severe storms from this line.
