Severe weather remains possible today.

The Storm Prediction Center just adjusted our probabilities of “x” happening w/in 25 miles of us this afternoon:

1.  58+ MPH winds, 30%:

2.  1″ hail, also 30%:

3. A tornado, 5%:

The tornado threat will be something to watch especially if supercells form out ahead of the main squall line.

The main severe threat isn’t expected until this afternoon, between 3 PM and 8 PM:

Simulated radar has the line moving through Williamson and Davidson Counties around 6 PM:
