 A tornado watch has been issued for parts of Kentucky and Tennessee - southward.  I believe southeast Missouri and southern Illinois is now out of any risk for severe storms.  Far western Kentucky is likely out of the risk, as well.  
The rest of the morning and afternoon hours will bring showers and thunderstorms - a few locally heavy downpours are likely.  Rain will come to an end later this evening.
Falling temperatures this afternoon - into the 50s!

Strong to severe thunderstorms possible early this morning (Monday).  High winds and hail are the primary threats - with the most intense storms.  Lightning and locally heavy rain, as well.  Isolated tornadoes can't be ruled out.

I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend.  The storms on Saturday gave way to warm conditions on Saturday afternoon and Sunday.  
---
The storm system we have been talking about for awhile is now approaching the region.  This system will spread showers and thunderstorms across the region during the morning hours on Monday.
---
The strongest storms could produce damaging wind gusts and hail.  An isolated tornado can't be ruled out.  Rainfall totals of 1/2-1" are likely over most of our counties.  Locally heavier rainfall totals are possible in slow moving thunderstorm cells that train over the same counties.

Listen to NOAA Weather Radio and local media for the most up to date watches and warnings.
