Severe thunderstorms are possible Monday, especially in the afternoon and evening.
Cloudy skies overnight with scattered showers as a warm front approaches Tennessee, maybe some thunder and lightning south of Nashville. Lows in the upper 40s.
Monday temperatures will warm into the mid and upper 60s as the warm front moves north of Nashville. That will set the stage for afternoon and evening thunderstorms, some of which may be severe, as a low pressure area moves in from the west. Much of middle Tennessee is under an enhanced risk of severe thunderstorms Monday. Storms from midday on could produce damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes. Even though the tornado risk is higher the farther south you are, there is the possibility of tornadoes anywhere in the mid-state, along with damaging winds. With some cold air aloft, there could be widespread large hail. After the storms exit the midstate in the evening, colder air will funnel in on north to northwesterly winds. Lows in the mid 40s.
Tuesday will be damp and chilly with scattered showers and drizzle. Highs only in the upper 40s to near 50. Still partly to mostly cloudy and chilly Wednesday with highs only near 50. There could even be a few flurries or snow showers in far east Middle TN and the Cumberland Plateau Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.
Milder weather starts to return late next week.
