Storms Today, Stronger Storms Tomorrow

Current Radar

Tonight: Storms Continue, Ending This Evening – 9PM 81°

Flag Day — where we honor the adoption of our great American Flag that occurred in 1777. President Woodrow Wilson officially proclaimed June 14th “Flag Day” back in 1916.

Today’s ongoing storms are driven by the heat and humidity of the day and once the sun goes down, they’ll lose their energy.

Also, anyone who does see rain will experience a 10-15 degree temperature drop. Otherwise, temps will fall back through the 80s and upper 70s later this evening.

A comfortable evening is in store!

Wednesday: Muggy and Hot AM, PM Storms (Severe?) – Wake Up 74° High 92°

NWS Nashville regarding Wednesday’s storms:

Wednesday is a repeat of Tuesday, although a touch cooler. But the heat index that approaches the century mark by early afternoon won’t have you feeling any different.

Showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop by mid-afternoon, lasting through the evening. The atmosphere will have tons of “storm food” or CAPE (Convective Available Potential Energy) to work with, especially as dew points skyrocket. Storms that develop will have a tendency to pulse, or grow strong to severe quickly, and then just as fast, dissipate. A few of these could be severe with damaging winds and large hail.

The Storm Prediction Center has placed us under a “Slight risk” (2 on a scale 0-5):

All of this activity should again die down after sunset, while moving east-southeast of our area.

Thursday: HOT, Chance of Strong Storms – Wake Up 74° High 96°

Thursday is going to be HOT. That we know for sure.

What is uncertain are the rain chances for the afternoon. A cold front will be surging southward toward our area, pushing in a lot of dry air aloft. Depending on if this mixes out or not, it looks like areas to our south and east have the best chance for storms. The SPC has placed the “Slight risk” for severe weather just to our east.

Here in Davidson/Williamson Counties, don’t be caught off guard by a few PM storms, some strong, but most folks stay dry.

Extended Outlook: Cooler Temps, Drier Air
