These areas are likely to see damaging wins over 60 miles per hour, hail the size of golfballs, and even the threat of strong long lived tornadoes.
With the front to the east and southeast at sunrise, temperatures will dip into the mid 50s for mourning lows in and around the Red Stick. Much colder air will start to wrap in behind the cold front.
Outside the thunderstorms, wind gusts will approach 50 miles per hour.
Heavy rain, lightning, strong winds and hail will all be possible with these thunderstorms.
A wind advisory is in effect Tuesday from 10 a.m. morning through 10 p.m. Gusts up to 45 miles per hour are expected.
We have seen our share of tornadoes this year in Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky. It's all thanks to a warm front that will lift through the region tonight, bringing a surge of warmer air and the potential for severe thunderstorms, especially after Midnight. Strong southwest winds at the surface will add to the intensity of the severe storms.
Low temperatures expected to fall into the low to mid-30s!
Thursday: Mostly sunny with a high near 57 degrees. Temperatures have already warmed up into the lower 70s as highs will make a run for the upper 70s by the afternoon. Most stay dry, but a few spots will get a quick splash of very light rain.
Now is the time to prepare for severe weather.
Another chance for stormy weather looks to roll into Central Texas and the Austin area Tuesday afternoon into the evening.
