NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) –  Much of Middle Tennessee is under a Tornado Watch until 7 p.m. Sunday.

Storms should cross the Tennessee River from between noon and 2 p.m. and push into the Nashville area and the Interstate 65 corridor roughly around 3 to 6 p.m. Get the latest forecast at wkrn.com/forecast.

The storms will continue through the eastern counties from 4 to 8 p.m.

Gusty damaging winds and hail are the biggest threats, but a few tornadoes cannot be ruled out. Check the latest weather advisories at wkrn.com/alerts.

It will also be windy ahead of the storms, running 15-25 mph from the south with gusts possible to 40 mph.  The Storm Prediction Center has much of Middle Tennessee, including Nashville in a “Slight” Risk for severe weather, with a “Marginal” Risk to the east.

Another round of showers and storms should push across the mid-state late Sunday night through early Monday morning, but the cooling effect from the previous storms may keep them from becoming severe.
