NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – We are tracking storms crossing the Tennessee River that are showing a weakening trend. Although areas east of the Tennessee River could experience some lightning and thunder, as well as non-severe wind gusts, no significant severe weather is expected outside of the Marginal Risk area (category 1 out of 5) tonight which covers areas west of the Tennessee River.

On Sunday, as a cold front pushes through, we expect a chance for showers and a few storms from morning to midday, with a few storms continuing in our eastern counties through the afternoon. For Nashville and the I-65 corridor, skies will clear during the afternoon with highs in the low to mid-80s, and winds shifting from the southwest to northwest 10-15 mph with gusts to 20 mph.

Another cool down is in the forecast for Sunday night and Monday, dropping lows to the 50s and highs in the upper 70s, followed by more cool air moving in for the mid and later parts of the week, with highs in the 70s and lows in the upper 40s, along with a stiff north and northeasterly wind.

Tropical Storm Ian has formed in the Caribbean and is expected to intensify and make landfall next week along the western coast of Florida.

The newest model runs are showing the remnants of the storm jogging to the West as it moves northward, bringing some rain to Middle TN and Southern KY late Friday and Saturday.
