Severe Weather and Flash Flooding possible for Clarksville-Montgomery County Monday night into Tuesday

National Weather ServiceNashville, TN – According to the National Weather Service, an intense weather system that is expected to begin developing over the plains tonight will likely bring severe weather to the Clarksville-Montgomery County area as well as Middle Tennessee as early as late Monday evening through Tuesday.

By late evening Monday, Middle Tennessee will be well within the warm sector of this system. Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will be possible during this time frame and any of these storms could become severe. Damaging wind gusts and one or two tornadoes are not out of the question.

By midnight Monday night we will be turning our focus to the west. An intense line of showers and thunderstorms will be ongoing and moving towards the mid-state. As the line crosses the Tennessee River, the potential will exist for damaging wind gusts, hail, tornadoes and flash flooding.

While the line is expected to weaken slightly with time, these same severe weather threats will be possible as far east as the Cumberland Plateau by daybreak Tuesday. Not to be left out, as the surface low ramps up and moves closer to the state Monday, gradient winds will begin to strengthen.

This means that winds outside any thunderstorms that develop could be as strong as 15-25 mph sustained with gusts as high as 35 to 40 mph. These are likely to start on Monday and last through Monday night into Tuesday morning.

Please keep in mind that the bulk of this severe weather will be during the overnight hours. Nocturnal tornadoes are one of the biggest killers in Middle Tennessee. Stay weather aware throughout Monday night and Tuesday and have a plan to shelter in already in place before severe weather arrives.
