A boundary to our north, and plenty of moisture over the Mid-South will lead to afternoon thunderstorm chances for all of the NewsChannel 5 viewing area. This unsettled, but welcomed pattern will be the theme for the rest of the week and into next weekend. From now until Sunday night, some areas could see a total of 3” of rain.
Monday afternoon and evening areas from the Cumberland Plateau and east could see a strong to severe thunderstorm with heavy rain that could lead to flash flooding as well as damaging wind. The area mentioned is under a Marginal Risk (1 out of 5) for severe storms during that time.
On Tuesday, as the boundary slides a little more south, all of Southern Kentucky and most of Middle Tennessee will be under a Marginal Risk for severe storms.
By Wednesday, the Marginal Risk for severe weather will be along and north of I-40
