Better Storm Chances Today, Best Chance Tomorrow

Current Radar

Tonight: Showers/T-Storms Become More Widespread – 9 PM 80°

Well, those showers have begun to arrive and will be in and around our area through the rest of the afternoon as we head into the evening hours.

With these showers and thunderstorms, there is no particular pattern to where storms will develop. These storms are very random. For the most part, storms are traveling in a general Southwest to Northeast direction.

HRRR displays these showers continuing into the evening.

Main concerns for tonight are small hail, gusty winds, heavy downpour, and lots of lightning. There are no tornado concerns associated with any storms that may develop.

These storms should begin to lose strength into the late evening after the sun sets. Overnight, expect temps to fall into the low 70s.

Thursday: Best Storm Chances – Wake Up 69° High 87°


Thursday, storm chances ramp up because of a weak cold front sagging southward towards the mid-state. The day will be characterized yet again by warm temperatures, increasing cloudiness, and once again, that muggy feel outside.


Thunderstorm initiation may wait a little longer than Wednesday, so expect the “more solid” rain chance to begin after 3PM continuing through the evening. Also, notice the better coverage of wet weather is over the southern half of the state. We’ll have to wait and see if this idea verifies through the next couple of model runs. If so, Williamson County will have better storm opportunities than Davidson County.

These storms could also be strong, but no widespread severe weather is expected. Afternoon/evening activities could be in dire straights if any of these heavy rain makers moves over your outdoor plans.

Evening temperatures will depend on if you experience any rain-cooled air, which could drop temperatures back 10-15 degrees. Otherwise, 70s are a good bet.

Friday: Mostly Cloudy, Storms Possible North – Wake Up 69° High 86°

Morning storms may linger but diminish after the AM rush hour. Afternoon/evening showers and storms are more of a possibility for folks in Davidson County, with drier air punching through at the mid levels in southern Williamson County and points south.

Timing and coverage are still a bit uncertain, and we’ll have to wait to see higher resolution guidance for a more precise forecast. Otherwise, Friday is another warm day with another chance of wet weather. Not everyone will get wet, but those who do might get a good soaker.
