The National Weather Service says conditions are right today for the possible development of tornadoes and damaging wind over parts of the Tennessee Valley to the Southern Appalachians. The areas most likely to experience this activity include Northern Alabama, Northern Georgia, Southern and Eastern Kentucky, Northern Mississippi, Western North Carolina, and much of Tennessee.
