Evening Forecast; Severe Chances on the Horizon

It was an absolutlely gorgeous day this morning, then a few areas had some clouds move in, but those should be both few and far between with SW TN and NE TN being the exception, there are a few low topped clouds still hanging around.
Here's your current conditions:
Nashville: Partly Cloudy / 64 degrees / Winds are out of the South at 5 mph
Smyrna: Partly Cloudy / 66 degrees / Winds are Calm
Clarksville: Mostly Clear / 63 degrees / Winds are ENE at 6 mph

Here's the quick forecast for the week ahead.
Monday: Partly Cloudy, High near 71
Tuesday: Mostly Cloudy, High near 73
Wednesday: Thunderstorms Likely, High near 65, Chance of Precipitation 60%
Thursday: Partly Cloudy, High near 68

Wednesday might have severe weather in store for our area. At the current time, The Storm Prediction Center has a "Slight" Risk area issued for areas, mainly in Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. Current thinking is that a deep surface low pressure system that should move through Wisconsin into Lake Superior area on Wednesday, a trailing cold front should sweep across the area. A marine warm front will also slip up into the region providing a space for warm, moist air to establish before the cold front sweeps through. We think a linear convective band will be ongoing at 6Z on Wednesday and continue through into the slight risk area. The warm sector should provide a good area for rapid storm development and intensification. Now, all this activity will stay to our south, but we cannot rule out an isolated damagiung wind storm, or even a small hail producer.

**WEATHER NERDS!!! If I were you i'd watch the plains tomorrow, the SPC has a "Moderate Risk" out for a small portion of the area**

Have a good night and stay safe!
