Updated Severe Potential This Weekend

Welcome to the first week of June.

The month of May was quite exciting with a bunch of rainfall (with 5-6" amounts common in the area and 3+ inches during May 4-5), warm weather (high of  May 20-21), and chilly weather (lows in the mid 30's on the 13th) . Just another typical month of Tennessee weather in the spring time of the year.

We are watching a potentially developing situation for later tonight and early Sunday across the Upper Cumberland. There is the potential for strong to severe storms with large, damaging hail, strong winds, and heavy rainfall with frequent lightning in the region. The main threat will be from damaging straight-line winds. Localized flooding will be possible in the areas that receive the heaviest rainfall.

The greatest potential for storms today (Saturday) will be back to our west near the Tennessee River area.

Our main threat will be during the overnight hours of Saturday night and sunrise on Sunday although we may see some heavier showers and thunderstorms develop this afternoon during the heat of the day and continue after the strongest line comes through on Sunday morning.

The upcoming week will feature a variety of weather including sunshine, a chance for storms and highs mainly in the 80's.
