Intense storms possible overnight across Middle Tennessee

Weather

One final punch of strong storms is on deck to sweep across the entirety of Middle Tennessee over Wednesday night into early Thursday morning.

A combination of daytime heating, ample humidity and a system to the west come together and form a line of intense storms that will affect the entire region overnight.

Storms begin over western Kentucky and dive into Middle Tennessee around or just after midnight tonight before moving out toward sunrise Thursday.

With recent wet weather, soils are saturated and any strong burst of wind could down trees and in turn create power outages.
