DAY ONE: Today and Tonight

Showers and thunderstorms are expected to become numerous today as a
cold front moves into the Tennessee Valley. Some strong storms are
possible.

Wind gusts around 40 to 50 mph, frequent lightning and
locally heavy rainfall will be the primary impacts with storms this
afternoon into the early evening.

A few instances of minor flooding may also occur. Thunderstorms will linger into the overnight period, but the overall intensity and coverage of activity will decrease during the evening.

DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN: Sunday through Friday

The front may stall close to southern portions of the area on Sunday, with chances for thunderstorms continuing. The best chances for thunderstorms will be in areas generally south of the Tennessee River on Sunday. A few of these storms could produce gusty straight line winds.

Isolated or scattered thunderstorms are expected each day from Monday through Friday. Organized severe thunderstorm activity is not likely during this period, but a few storms could produce gusty straight line winds, especially during the Wednesday to Friday period.

Hot temperatures are expected to return by the end of the week, with temperatures possibly near heat advisory criteria by Friday.
