Aside from a very isolated shower chance Wednesday afternoon, the weather looks dry and breezy across Middle Tennessee and southern Kentucky.
Highs will reach into the lower 80s with a brisk south wind around 15 miles-per-hour, with some higher gusts. There is an afternoon severe weather threat in Arkansas and west Tennessee, with strong winds and even isolated tornadoes possible.
Showers and thunderstorms will arrive from the west after dark.
The storms should arrive in Nashville around 10 p.m. although could hold off until 11 p.m. or Midnight.
Areas along and west of a line from Clarksville to Dickson to Centerville to Hohenwald to Lawrenceburg are now included in the Storm Prediction Center's slight risk area for severe weather, because the storms could produce damaging wind gusts and possibly prompt an isolated tornado warning.
Counties near the Interstate 65 corridor and points east will likely see heavy downpours, non-severe gusty wind and lots of lightning.
The rain moves east overnight as temperatures drop to the mid 50s.
The moisture completely exits the Cumberland Plateau around sunrise Thursday.
Thursday looks breezy and cooler, but mostly sunny. Highs will be around 70 degrees, although much of the afternoon will be spent in the mid-to-upper 60s.
