Thunderstorms with heavy downpours and lots of lightning moved across Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky Thursday night and early Friday morning.

A round of scattered storms reached areas such as Paris, Clarksville and Camden by 9 p.m. before crossing Nashville, Franklin, Columbia and the I-65 corridor after 10 p.m. A second round of storms pushed through downtown Nashville around 2 a.m.

Portions of Murfreesboro Pike just south of downtown Nashville suffered several inches of flooding due to the heavy rainfall in a short amount of time around 5 a.m.

The storms weakened as they moved eastward across the state.

By mid-morning Friday, the wet weather will have moved out of Middle Tennessee. High temperatures will reach the mid-70s with a northwest breeze that will drop the humidity.

By Saturday, the weather should be perfect for the Country Music Marathon

Runners will be delighted with the cool temp near 50 degrees as the race begins at 7 a.m. under clear skies. 

Temperatures will warm fairly quickly and should be around 75 degrees by 11 a.m. with low 80s expected in the afternoon.

Another threat of severe weather is possible early next week, if not Sunday afternoon and night.
