Another Stormy Day in Middle Tennessee

Today’s another day when you’ll want to remain weather aware.  Thunderstorms will develop throughout the Mid State.  Any from about mid morning on could become severe.

As of just before 9am, showers and thundershowers were expanding.  The heaviest rain was over southeastern Middle Tennessee.  New showers were forming around Clarksville and near Mt. Juliet/Lebanon.

More storms were upstream over Missouri.  Expect those to expand as they spread southeastward into the Mid State later.

Our severe weather threat today shows the greatest chance for strong-severe thunderstorms over south-central Middle Tennessee.

Breaking down that threat, notice hail and high wind will be possible with any of the storms, in addition to torrential downpours.

SEVERE THREAT

FUTURECAST is doing a fantastic job showing the storms developing, and pushing southeastward.

Tonight, the area will dry out quickly, so if you have outdoor evening plans you have a good shot at getting them in.

Tomorrow, the rain chance will be much lower as our attention shifts from rain to building heat.

Look at expected high temperatures tomorrow.  Nashville will get to 95 degrees.  Today, Nashville will only hit 89, for comparison.

The heat index tomorrow afternoon will be nearly off the charts.

Because of the searing heat that’ll develop tomorrow and linger into Saturday, a Heat Advisory has been issued for southwest Kentucky and West Tennessee.

I’ll be tracking the showers and storms as they develop through the morning.  Watch me on News4 at noon today for an update on all of the above.  I’ll also show you where the strongest storms are then and where they’re headed.
