Big weekend warm-up could yield some strong storms Sunday

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

The weekend will have quite a mixed bag of weather, so let's get to it!

Saturday: As a warm front passes by, light southeast winds will become south winds 10 to 20 miles-per-hour by afternoon, pushing temperatures into the low 80s.

The day should be mostly rain free except for a few showers possible near daybreak with the warm front passage.

Saturday Night:  A mild and rain free evening is in store with lows in the mid 60s Sunday morning.

Sunday:  A breezy morning with south and southwest winds increasing to 15 to 25 miles-per-hour will bring a line of thunderstorms in during the afternoon and early evening hours. 

Rough Estimated Time of Arrival
crossing the Tennessee River Noon to 1 p.m., Nashville 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and east Middle Tennessee from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.  Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s.

Sunday's storms could contain damaging winds of 50 miles-per-hour or more in some locations. 

An isolated tornado can't be ruled out, but damaging straight line winds are more likely.

The Storm Prediction Center has us in a "Slight Risk" for severe weather with a 15% chance for severe weather within 25 miles of a point.
