These locations include: Western Henderson, Western Van Zandt, and Northwestern Anderson Counties. This "Slight Risk" will continue through 7:00 a.m. Wednesday. Most of the severe weather will stay to our west, but we can't rule out the threat with these storms will be large hail and damaging wind gusts in these areas. A few tornadoes will be possible within the "Slight Risk" area, mainly to our west. The risk for severe weather will subside Wednesday.
