Slight Risk Of Severe Weather Today; Severe Threat All Weekend?

Even after this morning's round of heavy rain and thunderstorm activity, we do have another risk this afternoon of some pop-up severe storms. With the strongest storms, you can expect thunderstorm wind gusts to around 60 mph and large hail to the size of quarters. The tornado threat is and will stay back west in the Great Plains region.

And as we head into the weekend, we keep this stormy weather around as the SPC has all of Middle TN and SCK in a Slight risk for Saturday. Main risks tomorrow will be damaging winds and large hail yet again. Then for Sunday, they have areas from Nashville westward in the Slight zone, but the difference for Sunday is that we do have a low tornado chance unlike for today and tomorrow. But like I said, that chance is low and really it doesn't look to be all that potent in terms of tornadic weather.
