Severe Weather Potential Overnight

We are watching the potential for strong to severe storms overnight in middle Tennessee. At this point, the greatest threat appears to be in the southern and EASTERN sections of the mid-state.

Temperatures will remain fairly steady during the overnight hours and I expect the strongest of storms to be in the 2 am to 5 am time frame for those of us living in the Cookeville area. We'll have gusty winds to 20 mph overnight. Chance of rain is 90%.

Behind the active weather overnight, Saturday's forecast is one of falling temperatures with shower chances before noon. Skies will be cloudy with a cold north to northwest wind around 10 mph. Chilly on Saturday night with a low of 40°.

Winds turn southerly on Sunday with a slight chance for showers and a high of 63° and winds gusting to 25 mph.

There will be a possible second round of storms rolling through for Sunday night with windy conditions. We'll update you on those chances on Saturday.
