Rain Today..and Thursday

Storms later today
Thunderstorms are likely this afternoon across most of Middle Tennessee.  Locally, these storms could washout my daughter's first Track Meet at CHS scheduled for 3:30 this afternoon.  We get a break from the rain on Wednesday, but storms return for Thursday and Thursday night.  Those storms could become severe on Thursday.
