.DISCUSSION...
INITIAL BAND OF SHOWERS AND STORMS CONTINUE TO MOVE ACROSS MIDDLE
TENNESSEE INTO THE CUMBERLAND PLATEAU THIS EVENING AHEAD OF A COLD
FRONT TO THE WEST. TO THE NORTH OF THE KY/TN BORDER...A WEAK
STATIONARY FRONT REMAINS IN PLACE...ALSO SERVING AS A FOCUS FOR
ADDITIONAL SHOWERS AND STORMS THERE. THERE SHOULD BE AT LEAST SOME
MODEST INSTABILITY IN PLACE OVERNIGHT TO WARRANT THE POTENTIAL FOR
CONTINUED ISOLATED TO SCATTERED STRONG TO MARGINALLY SEVERE STORMS
LATE THIS EVENING AND OVERNIGHT... PARTICULARLY IF THE
AFOREMENTIONED BOUNDARY ACROSS KY CONTINUES ITS SLOW SLIDE INTO THE
NORTHERN PLATEAU AND CUMBERLAND MOUNTAINS OF EAST TENNESSEE. DO NOT
THINK COVERAGE WILL BE AS GREAT AS PREVIOUSLY ADVERTISED...SO HAVE
LOWERED POPS SLIGHTLY AFTER MIDNIGHT TO THE 40 TO 60 PERCENT RANGE.
DAMAGING WINDS WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH THE STRONGEST ACTIVITY
TONIGHT...ALONG WITH LIGHTNING...SMALL HAIL AND HEAVY DOWNPOURS.
