Severe risk continues this evening, Wind Advisory tonight & Monday

Western Kentucky and Middle Tennessee are under a slight risk for severe weather Sunday evening and night and a Wind Advisory has been issued from 10 p.m. Sunday until 1 p.m. Monday.

The National Weather Service in Paducah says damaging winds and heavy rain will be the primary threats, though an isolated tornado and large hail cannot be ruled out.

Rainfall amounts are now expected to come in at an inch to an inch and a half, with higher totals and a greater risk for severe weather the farther south you go.

Once the storms pass, there will be sustained winds of 20 to 25 mph with gusts up to 45 mph.

Unsecured objects outdoors could be tossed around and a few tree limbs could be blown down.
