A 4WARN Weather Alert is in effect for Friday! Strong to severe storms are possible on Friday with the added threat for flash flooding.
Early in the morning, expect just showers. Heavy thunderstorms will develop and organize by midday, as the main band of weather approaches Nashville. Through the afternoon, the best chance for torrential rain and severe weather will push through eastern Middle Tennessee and over south central Kentucky.
This potentially dangerous weather will be in response to the remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy….moving through southern Arkansas tonight, on its way toward the Midwest.
Most of the Mid State is in a “Slight Risk” area for severe storms on Friday. That’s a level 2 threat, on a scale of 1 to 5.
Look at FUTURECAST below. Notice at 4pm, the computer depicts many mini supercells (as shown by their kidney bean shape) moving east of the I-65 corridor. While it all won’t go exactly this way, if we get enough sunshine earlier in the day and temperatures reach the lower-middle 80s, severe storms will be likely.
SO….Friday is definitely a day to remain weather aware and prepared. Download and configure the *free* 4WARN Weather app as you see below, to ensure any watches and warnings issued reach you instantly!
Temperatures Friday will peak in Nashville around midday. Then, as the rain moves through, we’ll cool some.
All this rain will wrap up very early on Saturday. Count on breaking clouds through Saturday as less humid air trickles in. Sunday will be absolutely gorgeous, with sunshine, highs in the lower 80s, lows near 60, and low humidity!
