The threat for wind damage and large hail continues into this evening across the Tennessee Valley. A Severe Thunderstorm Watch continues until 11 p.m. for portions of Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
The Storm Prediction Center has outline most of the Tennessee Valley for a chance of severe thunderstorms, with an enhanced risk from Nashville to near Atlanta. The storms have already produced large hail when moving through Missouri earlier today.
The complex of thunderstorms will continue to roll to the southeast, moving through most of Tennessee this afternoon and into Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina later tonight.
In California, there is a marginal risk for severe thunderstorms in the central and northwest parts of the state. Funnel clouds have already been reported and additional storms could produce severe weather into this evening.
