NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - It’s a day to stay weather-aware across the Midstate as two rounds of strong storms will move in this afternoon and again overnight.

The main concern with today’s storms will be damaging wind gusts. We also cannot rule out the possibility of some brief spin-up tornadoes. Hail and flooding may also accompany these storms. The first round is expected between 1 - 7 p.m. The next round overnight will start moving into Middle Tennessee around 10 p.m. and last until 5 a.m.
