Update from NWS 1pm:

Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect until 8pm for Rutherford County and many surrounding counties.

Scattered thunderstorms have already developed, but additional storms are expected to develop throughout the afternoon. Main concerns are localized flooding and damaging winds with any strong to severe storm that develops, but small hail and an isolated tornado cannot necessarily be ruled out.

The damaging wind and small hail threat is mainly for this afternoon and early evening. The flooding threat could begin as early as this afternoon, but may last into the overnight hours.

Moving into the rest of the day, make sure you have multiple ways to receive warnings and remain weather aware!

Original Story:

Thunderstorms are expected Monday afternoon continuing overnight, reports National Weather Service (NWS).

The latest report from NWS says a few storms could be strong to severe with damaging wind & flooding. Two rounds of rain and storms are expected – the first in the mid-afternoon (mainly after 2pm) to early evening and the second overnight. The main threats will be damaging straight line winds and isolated flooding if storms repeatedly track over the same areas.

Lingering rain exits east Tuesday morning, drier and cooler by the afternoon and we will have dry weather through Thursday; however, rain and storm chances return Friday into the weekend.
