Severe weather threat for Middle Tennessee today and continuing into the weekend


Over the next several days, rounds of thunderstorms will cause quite an inconvenience to our normal routine. This unsettled pattern is likely to stick around through the weekend and early next week.

Not only will rounds of heavy rain roll in, but several thunderstorms that could turn severe. Just a couple of storms could generate small hail, frequent lightning, and wind gusts in excess of 40-50 mph. At this time, the threat for tornadoes is extremely low.

Though this will be a prolonged period of wet weather, there is a very bright light at the end of the tunnel. A front is expected to swing through Tuesday. That will lower humidity, drop temperatures, and bring out the sun next Wednesday and beyond. The weather following the front will be great.
