Here’s why…

An area of low pressure currently over Oklahoma will continue pushing east, increasing our chance of showers and storms, especially late tonight and especially for area north of the I-40 corridor.

Here’s a good idea of the timing…DD RPM 4KM EVENINGDD RPM 4KM EVENING1DD RPM 4KM EVENING2DD RPM 4KM EVENING3DD RPM 4KM EVENING4DD RPM 4KM EVENING5DD RPM 4KM EVENING6DD RPM 4KM EVENING7

Some of these storms could be strong to severe, with the best chance over northwest Middle Tennessee. Areas under the YELLOW are under a ‘Slight Risk’ (2 on a 1 to 5 scale) and areas under the GREEN color are under a ‘Marginal Risk’ (1 on a 1 to 5 scale) of any storms reaching severe criteria. Damaging winds will be the greatest threat.daphne severe new2

You will want to keep the umbrella handy on Friday! Widespread showers and non-severe isolated thunderstorms are expected during the day before just a few scattered showers linger into Friday evening plans.

Clouds and rain will combine to bring a noticeably cooler day, only reaching the upper 60 to lower 70-degree range…

With dew points in the low to mid 60s, it will still feel humid out there…little extra hair spray never killed anybody. 🙂
