4WARN Weather Alert for Wednesday

After some cold morning lows this weekend, it is feeling like spring again.  Tomorrow spring-like showers and a few thunderstorms move in.  Wednesday a greater chance of stronger thunderstorms.  More on that later.

This Monday started off on wet for many with scattered showers moving across Middle Tennessee.  It didn’t amount to much, Nashville International recorded .06″. It was enough to help with the pollen, dropping it to 1.4.  Tomorrow the pollen will still be fairly low at 2.6.  Later in the week it will be on the rise again.

The sun did come out for most folks this afternoon, warming things to 63 degrees today in Nashville.  It was a little cooler where the clouds lingered.

Tomorrow things get even warmer. As the warm front comes through, we can expect to see a few  thunderstorms to fire up.  The greatest chance of rain will be in the morning.  The Storm Prediction Center has put the northwestern part of the viewing area in a “Slight Risk” zone, that is a 2 on a 1-5 scale. Here’s how the latest Futurecast depicts the rain.

By Wednesday a cold front makes and approach.  It will trigger ran and thunderstorms starting in the morning. The jet steam will help speed up the wind with this system, sustained winds will be south 10-20 mph. We will likely see a squall line develop producing damaging wind.  We can not rule out a possible tornado or two.

Futurecast has the storms moving into Middle Tennessee around 4AM and exiting the Cumberland Plateau by around 3pm.
