The severe threat window in Middle Tennessee is through about 3 a.m. Areas along the Tennessee River can expect storms until about 11pm. The Nashville area from 9pm-1am and areas west to the Cumberland Plateau from 12mid-4am. The strongest storms expected before midnight.


Damaging wind gusts and isolated tornadoes will be possible with some of the storms. Storms will weaken somewhat as they move east of I-65 but you will still need to be weather-ready out toward the Plateau through the middle of the night. Showers and storms will move out of our area before sunshine on Saturday.

In addition to all of this, a Wind Advisory goes into effect for the entire Mid State tonight and into our day on Saturday with non-thunderstorm wind gusts near or over 40 mph at times.
