Afternoon and Overnight Saturday Storms

As you can see above, all of TN is in a slight risk of severe weather from the Mississippi River Valley all the way over to the Great Smoky Mountains in East Tennessee today. We expect nothing close to the outbreak of severe weather that the Plains and Midwest have had the past couple of days, but a Severe T'storm Warning and maybe even a Severe T'storm Watch is not out of the question. Here's what the categorical chart says.

2% chance of tornadoes

15% chance of hail

15% chance of wind

With the storms not expected to arrive here til the early evening into overnight hours for southern parts of Mid. TN, your morning plans should go uninterrupted weather wise (Read about the Tour de Cure from previous post). We should record are forecasted high of upper 80's for Nashville, mid 80's for the Rim, and low 80's for the Plateau. Here is my forecast for today as well when you should expect the storms to arrive in your neck of the woods.

Nashville: upper 80's; 50% chance; 4-5 p.m.
Clarksville: mid to upper 80's; 60% chance; 1-2 p.m.
Cookeville: low (over towards Monterrey) to mid (Cookeville) 80's; 50% chance; 3-4 p.m.
Columbia: upper 80's; 50% chance; 6-7 p.m.
Manchester: upper 80's; 40% chance; overnight (threat of severe weather diminishes rapidly)

Movie Review: Here's my worthless two cents about my review of the movie "The Strangers". I'm not a huge scary movie fan (I like Comedy and Sports movies if anyone cares), but this movie was good. It keep you on the end of your chair the whole movie. I'd give it 3 out of 5 stars.
