Mueller Calls For Harsh Sentence In Manafort Case, Citing 'Gravity' Of Crimes
Five days earlier, he'll learn his sentence for the eight financial fraud convictions in the separate case in Virginia. Manafort struck a plea deal at the time and agreed to cooperate with Mueller's ongoing "Russiagate" investigation.

These storms will be capable of damaging straight line winds, a few tornadoes (one or two could be strong), and some isolated instances of hail to the size of quarters. "However, a slow melt with little additional precipitation would cause much-less-severe flooding".

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Expect areas of minor flooding to continue into the overnight hours.

Other counties under the watch include Stewart, Montgomery, Dickson, Houston, Rutherford, Cheatham, Williamson, Maury, Marshall, Bedford, Lincoln, Moore, Giles, Lawrence, Wayne, Lewis, Perry, Decatur, Benton, Carroll, and Henry counties.
