Storm Chances Continue

Thunderstorm chances continue today through Wednesday as a series of impulses will make their way through Middle Tennessee. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has us under a slight risk for severe storms. West Tennessee is under a moderate risk. The latest Hazardous Weather Outlook reveals spotter activation may be necessary. So, if your plans include outdoor activities over the next three days, keep an eye toward the sky and remember these words:

Temperatures will be in the upper 80's on Thursday to near 90° by Friday. Expect the Father's Day weekend to be nice with cooler temperatures and a slight chance for isolated showers.
