NASHVILLE, Tenn.- The National Weather Service Doppler Radar indicated a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado. Butler, Logan, and Warren Counties in Kentucky were under a tornado watch until 9:45 p.m. by 10 p.m. several homes were without power in southern Kentucky and one home in Hopkinsville was hit by lightning.
The storms are ahead of a cold front that is moving through the area. Some of the storms could be strong, but the most widespread severe threat will stay to the west of much of area. Once the front passes through during the morning hours of Monday, drier conditions will return with much of the rest of the week dry. Lows Sunday will drop to 63 with highs on Monday held into the 70s.
In the case of a tornado, take cover. Move to an interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy building. Avoid windows. If you are in a mobile home, vehicle, or outdoors, move to the closest substantial shelter and protect yourself from flying debris.
