One thing that is limiting the tornado and at least the very large hail threat is that the storms are so clustered together they are interrupting each other's inflow.  They are also quite outflow happy as well.  Very much a summertime high instability like setup.  In some cases that will lend to a damaging wind threat though and we are starting to see that with the storms moving out of Kentucky and into NW Middle Tennessee. 

The squall line moving out of Indiana and SW Ohio into northern Kentucky means business though and that could hold itself together into Northeast Tennessee.

Looks like that storm is starting to get its act back together.

   Areas affected...middle and eastern Tennessee...far northern Alabama
   and Georgia

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch likely

   Valid 090252Z - 090445Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...80 percent

   SUMMARY...Severe storms may eventually affect areas east of Tornado
   Watch 92, and a new watch is likely. Damaging winds appears to be
   the primary threat, but a tornado is possible.

   DISCUSSION...An unstable air mass resides across the region this
   evening, with ample deep-layer shear favorable for
   sustained/organized storms. Currently a line of storms is moving
   east/southeast across Middle TN, likely with damaging wind gusts.
   Downstream areas will likely require a watch soon as the environment
   is supportive of a continued threat. In addition, isolated cells
   cannot be ruled out as capping is minimal, and lift will persist
   through early tonight.

I had some lightning and gusty winds at my place, but nothing else. Anyone have significant weather last night?

I got hammered on 109 near 40E last night for a good 10-15 minutes. Definitely 60mph gusts and cats and dogs coming down. Spectacular lightning.

Some of my employees out in Polk Co were trapped by downed trees this morning. There must have been some high winds in that area. Nothing of note here. I slept through whatever happened, and there was less than 0.10" in the rain gauge this morning.

Knoxville seemed to get lucky with this one with things slipping to the south of us.  Let's hope everybody's luck holds as the pattern heats up and we can all be free of damage over the weekend.

On a side note I'm slowly returning to social media after being out for the last couple of weeks to avoid the spiraling panic it seems to create.  Good to see everybody again and get to talk about weather.
