Severe Weather Threat across the Mid State

Waking up to showers and rumbles of thunder for some across the Mid State. This is the start!


A cold front is in the midst of pushing through Tennessee, from the northwest working its way southeast. I expect showers and thunderstorms to pick up in number and intensity, mainly during the afternoon into the early evening today…


The Storm Prediction Center has a good chunk of our state our a ‘Marginal Risk’ for any storm to reach severe critera (level 1 of 5), mainly I-65 east and I-40 south. Damaging winds winds will be the greatest threat but I’m not ruling out some of the stronger storms to produce hail. A day to stay weather-aware!DAPHNE SEVERE 2 RISK REGION BOX

Low 70s kick start our morning which is right where we should be according to early August standards. Mainly cloudy skies and rain will serve as a blanket, pulling in below average highs in the lower 80s by the afternoon so you’ll want to keep the umbrella handy as you pick up the kiddos from the bus stop.SchoolDay_2012_Forecast

Shower and thunderstorm activity is expected to taper off in a NW  to SE direction, by the evening…so it is a quick moving system!

Bright sunshine, noticeably lower humidity and cooler highs in the lower 80s as soon as Saturday! Enjoy!daphne RPM 4KM DEW POINT

Not long before spotty showers make an appearance on Sunday before storm chances ramp up further Sunday night into early next week.
