Once again we will be closely watching as a Mesoscale Convective System or MCS (cluster of thunderstorms) moves out of Arkansas and approaches (southern) Middle Tennessee.

According to the Storm Prediction Center, Nashville will not see any severe storms from this MCS.

Storms should miss us to the south. Here’s the radar at 3:25 PM, and a look at where the HRRR and RAP models think storms will go tonight:

Notice how far we are from the yellow-shaded Severe Thunderstorm Watch boxes. That’s good.
