Strong thunderstorms will re-fire into this evening over parts of the Tennessee Valley, bringing another round of damaging winds and hail to areas that got hit hard earlier in the day.
Thunderstorms rocked parts of Kentucky and Tennessee this morning, bringing damaging winds, hail, and dangerous lightning to many areas. In fact, one house caught on fire after it was hit by a lightning bolt near Lawrenceburg, Tenn.
This first round of storms which produced some of the damage mentioned above are weakening as they push through Alabama toward Georgia.
We now turn our attention to a new round of storms which will develop later this afternoon and this evening from western Kentucky through central Mississippi.
The main threat from this next batch of storms will be damaging wind gusts, along with large hail. An isolated tornado is also possible, but not the biggest threat.
Cities that could be threatened by severe weather into this evening include Evansville and Paducah, Ky., Memphis, Tenn., and Jackson, Miss.
As with any thunderstorm, these storms may also produce torrential downpours, which could lead to localized flash flooding. Some across the region would say the more rain the better, as drought has brought major crop damage to the region already this year.
Residents living from the Tennessee Valley into the Southeast will want to keep an eye to the sky into this evening, and seek shelter when threatening weather approaches.
