If you don’t have your plan in place, now’s the time to do it! A line of intense thunderstorms will race across the area this evening. The storms are expected to arrive in the Robertson County area around 8PM and move out by 10PM. The primary concern is powerful, damaging straight line winds, but large hail and isolated tornadoes will be possible, too. Best chances for hail will be along and west of I-65, but all of Middle TN will have at least some threat through about midnight.
