By afternoon, clouds will break for some late-day sunshine.

After a nice weekend across the Mid-South, we are tracking the potential for strong to severe storms to impact the region on our Monday.

The Storm Prediction Center had placed part of the state under a "slight risk" for severe storms but has since downgraded the threat to a "marginal risk".

None of the storms, however, were severe. All of the severe weather should be out of our area by 1-2 AM. The dangers include damaging wind gusts, hail, frequent lightning and potentially tornadoes, Tuesday morning and afternoon.

The development of severe thunderstorms is expected by the early afternoon hours Monday across Middle Tennessee, including Montgomery County. But as of right now forecast models are showing ample amounts on instability, wind shear, and other ingredients for severe weather.

Behind Tuesday's storms and the front is MUCH colder, drier air that will clear us out and turn our temperatures to the chilly side through the rest of the week.
