StormTracker Forecast

Strong storms possible today

We are tracking two rounds of storms for today.

The first is losing strength and affecting northwestern areas of Middle Tennessee this morning.  As it weakens it will bring a few additional showers or thundershowers to places like Paris, Dover, and Erin.

The second round of storms will push in this afternoon and evening. These storms will likely be crossing the Tennessee River in the mid afternoon hours generally between noon and 2pm, crossing the I-65 corridor and the Nashville area roughly around 3-6pm, and our eastern counties 4-7pm.

The Storm Prediction Center has areas from I-65 in a “Slight” Risk for severe weather, with a “Marginal” Risk to the east. We will put the risk for high winds, hail, and brief heavy rains in the medium category, and though the tornado threat is lower, they cannot be ruled out.

It will be windy today, even out ahead of the storms, running 15-25 mph from the south with gusts to 40 possible.

A few more storms may push through with a cold front late tonight into early Monday morning, but with the cooling effect of the previous storms, they will likely not be severe.

Cooler temps come in for Monday, and another cool down comes our way on Thursday, Friday and into the weekend with some rain likely.

Don’t forget to snap photos and submit those through the WKRN apps as well. Just give us a little information about where and when the photo was taken. You can also send your pictures to pix@wkrn.com.
