Strong storms possible Thursday afternoon

As Alberto continues to lift north of our area we’ll refocus our eyes on tomorrow’s chances for strong to severe storms.

Right now, we’re under a “Slight” risk for severe storms from the Storm Prediction Center.

TIMING
We’ll begin our Thursday under partly cloudy skies and a few areas of rain.
Whatever sunshine we see tomorrow will continue to destabilize the atmosphere, setting us up for storms to bubble up in the afternoon.

Storms begin to fire up in northwestern/north-central TN during the early afternoon and track southeastward through the day.

Small hail and gusty winds will be the primary threats on Thursday but one or two spin-up tornadoes can not be entirely ruled out.

After Thursday we’ll begin a trend of drier weather rolling into the weekend. It won’t be an entirely rain-free weekend as a few isolated showers remain in the forecast. However, most of us will stay dry for Saturday with a slightly higher chance for rain on Sunday.
