NASHVILLE, TN (WKRN) – For the nation’s largest fireworks show, the forecast could be even bigger.

Last year, rain delayed the show, but this year will be different.

While morning wet weather has already shifted out, there could be several isolated thunderstorms during the afternoon. A disturbance rotating through southern Kentucky will produce pockets of rain.

Notice that there will be many dry areas, mainly south of Interstate 40, but some locations could have a quick soaker with lightning. After 6 p.m., most storms will fade, leading into a dry night.

If you cannot make the event downtown, News 2 has you covered. Beginning at 9 p.m., we will air special coverage of the fireworks.
