Severe weather including tornadoes could be widespread and intense in the areas under a Moderate risk. Tornadoes could be “long-lived,” meaning they could stay on the ground more than just few minutes.

People in Middle Tennessee especially from Nashville and the I-65 corridor should stay abreast of weather conditions anytime from lunchtime through the afternoon and early evening hours.

Colder air spills in Wednesday night and will be in place Thursday, along with leftover showers and temperatures struggling to reach the mid-50s. It will be a chilly day and you will need your umbrella.

As cooler temperatures settle in Thursday into Friday, frost is likely Friday night into Saturday morning with mid 30s for lows and possibly a freeze in our northern and eastern counties.

However, over the weekend we begin to warm back up and we will have mostly sunny skies.
