A Saturday washout, severe storms possible across middle Tennessee

Downed power lines in Rock County Friday

This storm will continue to track to the east, rather slowly, over the next 24 hours. A tornado or severe thunderstorm watch means that conditions are favorable for the development of severe storms, but does not ensure that such storms will develop, or pinpoint exactly where they will occur.

Threats: Damaging winds, small hail and heavy rain which could lead to localized flooding.

Highs on Saturday will be in the upper 80s away from the coast and in the low to mid 80s near the beach. Mid to late week, high pressure moves into the Western Atlantic with a warming trend and moisture returning.

If you witness any severe weather, we'd love to see any damage or hail that you witness.

A strong surface low-pressure passes north of us, a cold front will approach from the west late Sunday, and may even angle in more from the southwest pulled around the rotation of the strong low.

A storm system coming together over Arkansas and Oklahoma is already triggering tornado warnings and severe thunderstorms warnings Friday evening.

A potent storm system will sweep across the Carolinas on Sunday bringing a line of rain & storms along with an increased risk of severe weather.

The storm chance looks to end by 11PM-Midnight. Highs will be in the mid 60s. Stay tuned for live updates throughout the afternoon, evening and overnight hours.

Any fog will start dissipating at daybreak Sunday as winds start increasing.

Review your severe weather plan and know what you should do if a severe storm or tornado is near you.

Monday: Partly Cloudy. Cool and Breezy.

Then, the rest of next week will warm right back up to the 70s with plentiful sunshine, so we just have to get through tomorrow, and then we'll be home-free the rest of next week.
