NASHVILLE, Tenn- The SKYWatch Weather team is tracking two more rounds of weather which carry the potential for severe storms, each wave greater than the next.

A first round of weather will roll in Monday morning and will carry the potential of severe storms along with the chance for isolated tornadoes. 


The second round of severe storms carry the highest risk. This will occur Monday afternoon through early Tuesday morning. This wave carries the greatest risk for tornadoes, hail, damaging winds and rain. The mid-state could also be placed under a moderate risk warning from the Weather Prediction Center, which would mean isolated storm cells could produce stronger and longer lived tornadoes. Ironically, through this process, if rain continues on and off and cloudy weather remains, the mid-state's risk actually decreases on Monday.
