NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – After record-breaking temperatures on Friday, Middle Tennessee could see strong storms push through later.

The highest temperature for this day was previously 77 degrees, but the Nashville area reached 81 degrees by the afternoon.

Later this evening, a line of showers and a few heavier thunderstorms are expected to push through. The main threats will be damaging winds and small hail.

Behind the powerful front, we turn much colder overnight as temperatures drop through the 50s into the low 40s by morning.

Temperatures will stay in the 40s despite some sunshine on Saturday with gusty winds out of the northwest making it feel even colder.

Sunday will start off below freezing when lows drop into the upper 20s. Highs will be in the mid to upper 50s with sunshine followed by increasing clouds.
