NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A Severe Thunderstorm Watch was issued for parts of Middle Tennessee and parts of southern Kentucky late Saturday afternoon ahead of forecasted storms.

The watch, includes Bedford, Rutherford, Maury, Sumner and Wilson counties, among others, remains in effect until 10 p.m. Click here for all weather alerts.

Some of the expected scattered storms will have heavy downpours and brief gusty winds.

A few of the storms could produce locally heavy downpours, and though amounts are not anticipated to be as high as yesterday, saturated grounds in Sumner County and southern Kentucky will warrant keeping an eye out for any additional flooding.

These storms should move more quickly than yesterday morning’s, reducing the flooding threat, but not completely eliminating that chance.
