Scattered showers and storms will be around first thing Saturday morning.

Towards late morning/early afternoon a line of storms will take shape and work from west to east across Middle Tennessee.

It's this line that will have the strongest storms, some severe.

Here's the timing.

Damaging winds are the greatest threat for us, but isolated tornadoes and even small hail can't be ruled out.

hail forecast

In addition to those threats, rainfall amounts ranging from 1 to 3 inches are also likely.

Thankfully, this will not be a long duration event.

Showers/storms will clear up by late Saturday evening giving way to a dry and sunny Sunday.

Also, we don't look to take a big hit in the temperature department once the cold front passes Saturday night.

We'll stay in the 50s and 60s Sunday through at least Thursday of next week.

Hopefully, these temperatures hold for the remainder of the month putting an end to winter.

Showers and storms return by Wednesday.
