Additionally, an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. Timing is still uncertain, but it presently appears the best window for storms is from roughly 9 pm This evening to 4 am Saturday morning. Locations north of I-40 and west of I-75 will be most at risk.
It's never the wrong time to be thinking about severe weather safety. Know where you will go when a warning is issued.
